Ahhhhh, Valentine’s day, the one day of the year where it’s socially acceptable to be overly loved up and outwardly romantic to your better half. Now, if you’re a biker, your other half will generally be your motorcycle, with everything else just a distraction. 

If you’re on said side of the distraction equation, you might be looking for a romantic gift to try and win back some of the affection that’s no doubt wholly taken over by a machine, or maybe you could be dropping some not-so-subtle hints to your partner about what they can get you if they really love you. Either way, we’ve got you covered with these fantastic additions to any rider’s relationship…

Oxford Chain Monster 

Oxford Monster Chain £69.99

If you use the old ‘ball and chain’ saying, then this is one chain that you don’t want attached to said ball. It’s Thatcham and Sold Secure gold approved and comes with a padlock that has a double locking mechanism for extra security. Also handy for deterring thieves, don’t be the one who lets the love of your life be stolen by another... 

Forcefield Pro Shirt X-V-S £109.99

This CE level 2 approved body armour shirt is the perfect accompaniment to the biker in your life when they inadvertently forget Valentine’s day – again. The technical BeCool base layer helps regulate body temperature for when things get heated, and the chest, back and shoulder armour will protect your loved one after you’ve exhausted yourself taking out your anger on them. Also works well on forgotten birthdays and anniversaries too.

Autocom GPS Tracker

Autocom GPS Tracker £129.00

You want to know what your lover is REALLY up to when they go for a ride, don’t you? Why on earth would they just want to take their motorcycle out and disappear all day. Surely, they’re not just riding the whole time? Well, this could be the solution you’ve been seeking, this tracker lets you keep tabs on your significant other (and their bike) so you can see exactly where they are. It’s also pretty handy if the motorbike is stolen too. 

Pinlock ear plugs £17.42

It’s happened again, tempers flare and a heated debate has turned into a full-on shouting match. Hearing loss can occur when you’re exposed to loud noises for a long time, for example, when the argument over leaving the toilet seat up boils over and turns into a next-level shoutathon, or also when riding where the wind noise can be a big damaging factor. These Pinlock ear plugs are great for both scenarios. Winner!

Castrol Power 1 oil

Castrol Power 1 oil £28.89

We’re above making any crude lube-related jokes; however, we will make reference to the fact that a relationship is like a motorcycle, both need to be maintained so they can function properly. And, a bit of lube makes everything work that little bit easier…

Drift Ghost 4K action camera £299.99

Sometimes the best way to spice things up is to record it, if you’re into that sort of thing. We’re talking about when you’re out on the bike of course. After all, it’s nice to relive those brilliant roads… The latest Drift Ghost is perfect for such scenarios, and it shoots 4K too, so you can watch the footage back in rich detail.

Keis X25 Heated Sleeved jacket

Keis X25 Heated Sleeved jacket £161.99

It’s happened again, your significant other has done something wrong. Likely it was something they forgot to do because they were out riding, or perhaps it was something they said, or that they just didn’t shut up about motorcycles and you’ve had enough. Either way, they’ve been relegated to the couch to think on their sins (and probably think about bikes some more), this heated jacket will at least keep them from freezing to death when you give them the cold shoulder, works pretty well on the bike too when the mercury drops.

ACF-50 Anti Corrosion lubricant £13.74

Everybody knows you should really be wearing protection – it’s a well-known fact, right? The same can be said for a motorcycle, especially if it’s still seeing regular action at this time of the year. With salt and crud covering the roads, that simple and pleasurable ride will soon turn into a very dirty experience, and not the good kind either. Getting the ACF-50 out and lathering some on your love will help keep it protected when things get rough.

Alpinestars Ageless classic te

Alpinestars Ageless classic tee £18.99

Perhaps you’re still searching for the perfect gift, your significant other has everything needed for the love of their life, so what do you get them? Easy, get them something casual to wear, so for those rare times when they’re not on the bike everybody still knows they ride. You can’t go wrong with some decent Alpinestars threads either.
