Sony NEX-3N

So much about motorcycling is visual that we always find ourselves stopping to try and capture the moment through photography. The cameras on phones are getting better but if you’re going to create truly amazing pictures, the kind you could blow up and put on your wall or have framed, you need a real camera. The Sony NEX-3N is the perfect step between those crummy little point and shoots and a real DSLR. It has many of the same components as cameras that are twice as expensive. Price: $399.99

satechi

Satechi Energy Station 1000

If you’ve been reading for longer than a week or two, you know our love of adventure. A battery pack means a motorcyclist can listen to tunes or audiobooks on the ride out, knowing they’ll be able to recharge their phone, camera, or Bluetooth headset for photos and more during their adventures or for the ride home. The Satechi is cheaper than the Mophie Powerstation we own, while also having a 40% larger capacity. Price: $57.95

accell

Accell Travel Surge Protector

This may seem like overkill but, when we travel, we usually have a host of electronics that need powering. Many motel and hotel rooms have surprisingly scarce outlets, and this Accell Travel Surge Protector is a cheap and small fix. It turns one outlet into three, with two additional USB outlets. Price: $15.99

Is the motorcyclist on your list wishing they could take some jams to improve their #campvibes or a beach day?

Either way, The Ultimate Ears BOOM Wireless Bluetooth Speakers sound amazing, are water resistant, and will play music from a cell phone even if it’s up to 50 feet away. Want stereo sound? Buy two. Price: $179.99
