Struggling to shop for the motorbike nut in your life? Need some ideas for Christmas, Birthday or Father's Day? Here are a few motorbike gift ideas to make shopping for that special somebody easier...
Shopping for a loved one is difficult at the best of times, but is especially strenuous if they're a bike nut! It's easy to buy the "wrong thing", or buy a Harley Davidson mug because you EVERY biker must love a chopper, or avoid buying them anything bike-related altogether. How do you cope?
To make your life easier, the Infinity Team have rounded up some of our favourite items and most popular accessories and compiled them into this helpful list of motorcycle gift ideas to suit an all manner of sizes, ages, and budgets. Course if you're a rider yourself, you could also give your loved ones a list of presents you want!
All of these items are available to purchase online, and if you're spending more than £280 on motorcycle clothing or accessories at Infinity Motorcycles, you can take advantage of our interest-free credit and spread the cost over 6 months!

Smaller gifts Under £30
1. Muc-Off Multipack | Cleaners & Accessories | £29.99
Treat the motorcycle lover in your life with the Muc-Off Multipack, featuring three expert solutions to clean, protect and lubricate their pride-and-joy.

2. Pinlock Earplugs | Rider Accessories | £19.99
It is essential for riders to protect their ears on the motorcycle properly. Travelling over 50mph on a motorcycle can cause wind noise inside a helmet to reach 110dB (the equivalent of an electric drill!), causing serious damage to a rider's hearing. Make a family member's riding safer with these Pinlock Earplugs, specially designed to reduce wind noise down to a safe level without filtering out conversation or important traffic sounds. Each box comes with one usable set of filters, with one set of medium sized plugs and one set of large plugs included.
Here's what Bernard, a staff member at our Hanger Lane store, thought of the earplugs:
"My main reason for choosing this product is so I could still listen to my Bluetooth system clearly without the harsh sounds from the bike and surroundings. Works great and very clear with phone calls, music, navigations. Fits comfortably every time, easy to clean and maintain." You can read more of our reviews here.

"Even as an employee of Infinity Motorcycles I can wholeheartedly say that these are the most comfortable boxers you will ever wear.

"Best riding gear ever - I love these. They're easily the most comfortable and the best fitting pair of motorcycle trousers I've ever owned.
