by Kelli Karanovich

Choosing the perfect gift for your boyfriend can be a daunting task. However, knowing he enjoys riding motorcycles can at least give you a little direction You may think both practically and creatively when weighing your options. However, the perfect gift will most likely have your personal touch and also relate to his interest in motorcycles.

Safety First

One way to show your love is to make it clear you want your boyfriend riding in safety and style. He may perceive this as you being motherly, or he may be moved by how much you care. Invest in some new riding leathers or just an awesome leather jacket. Be sure to tell him how attractive he looks when he tries on your gift.

Right to the Bike

Ask your boyfriend some questions about his motorcycle to get a feel for whether it needs anything like replacement chrome, a new paint job or any other updated parts. If possible, you may purchase the parts and give them to him individually as gifts. Another option is to secure a gift certificate to his favorite body shop so he can have some creative work done when he needs it.

Romantic Rides

Making an arrangement for a romantic ride clearly shows your boyfriend that you enjoy being part of his life and support his motorcycle hobby. Romantic rides may be toward a single destination, or you can plan a route with several places to stop along the way. If your boyfriend likes camping, incorporate some overnight stays at state parks into the journey along with nights at hotels. You may also consider arranging the ride to end at a motorcycle rally that you can then attend together.

Themed Gear

Think about your boyfriend's interests in addition to motorcycles and purchase a gift related to these interests that has a motorcycle theme. For example, if he likes movies, consider getting a film about motorcycles like "Easy Rider." Then make him a special dinner, prepare some popcorn and watch it with him, perhaps while curled under a blanket you've purchased that's decorated with the emblem of his favorite motorcycle manufacturer.
