Valentine’s Gift Ideas to Help Convince a Woman to Ride a Motorcycle

So you love motorcycles, and you love the girl, but she’s kind of meh about motorcycles, or maybe you think all those stupid memes dudes post on the holidays throughout the year are true and she hates them and you have to do everything you can to hide and lie about your two-wheeled life. We have come up with a better approach for giving your lady gifts, and because Valentine’s is just around the corner we came up with Valentine’s Gift Ideas to Help Convince a Woman to Ride a Motorcycle.

If you’re reading AMERiders I’m willing to bet you’re pretty cool. And I’m willing to bet that if you’re into her she’s pretty cool. So, she might be open to changing her opinion. The trick is how you go about making that change You could try yelling: “You just don’t get it! Motorcycles are more important than anything in life – including you!”  But there are other ways around this dilemma.

The Forward Approach

Gift IdeasThis is the bold move, as you run the risk of failing to get her something she might truly be more interested in or be happier with, to get her something that might disappoint. Read the room here dudes; if she keeps dropping hints to you about a contouring palette from Sephora, maybe don’t show up with a Bright Silver Ladies motorcycle helmet instead. In that case, check a little further down in the article for ideas that work for most ladies, even if they aren’t motorcycles – yet. Or, you just get her the sparkly Anastasia highlighter kit she wants, but put it INSIDE the helmet! Boom! Or even find her a sparkly helmet too.

 

Talk to her on the ride, so she feels more confident

Get a pair of Sena Bluetooth communicators and set one up in her helmet. If you are able to talk to her on the ride you can do nice things like give her a “heads up” about a move you’re going to make. You can pull a Huell Howser (possibly an obscure reference for people who didn’t grow up in Los Angeles), and be a tour guide, or just point out beautiful vistas to her. You could even serenade her as you carve the canyons to really ramp up the romance.

Give her the gift of protection

Gift IdeasFor her hands a another of our gift ideas is, Our Full Finger Women’s Gloves With Faux Fur are made from top quality leather and feature white faux fur inside of the glove to give that extra added bit of warmth in the winter. These gloves not only work nicely when riding in autumn but they also can make her look stylish and keep her warmer around town as well with the faux fur lining.

Boots she can wear every day and on special occasions

Gift Ideas

Women love boots I should know I am one. We love our boots Winter and summer. They are often a fashionable part of the outfit we are wearing. I have at least 5 pairs of boots at home and 2 of them I use for riding. Women’s 6-inch black biker boot is built for comfort, durability, and traction control. Extra heavy duty traction sole for added protection and style.

This boot has good-year welt construction with top quality full grain oiled leather, a lace-up design with buckle strap, and YKK zipperGift IdeasThey are a fashionable, with a classic design, and can be worn with jeans or even shorts. One of my other pairs I wear I get compliments from stylists and fashionistas. It’s a Women’s 10″ Side Pocket Boot Black.  I also ride around town in them and love the high ankle coverage of both boots, as well as the grip the soles gives me. The first pair has a small heel makes this boot a pretty sassy part of any outfit for sure, but and doesn’t hurt your feet. I often stand in them all day. That doesn’t mean you get out of giving foot rubs, though, because you want to stay in this relationship right??

The sexy little black motorcycle jacket

Gift IdeasThis Women’s Leather Jacket completely passes as a fashion jacket with or without the pads inside. The perfect black leather jacket is a necessary part of every cool lady’s wardrobe and this one does not disappoint. It is also a technically designed motorcycle jacket with features a Zip-Out lining that runs through the sleeves.

It also features air-vents on the sleeves and back of the jacket, small ventilation holes on the underarm area, padding through the sleeve and back for extra protection, a snap down collar, gathering at the waist and zippered cuffs for ultimate fitting. I showed this to some of my friends who don’t ride and it received a 100-percent approval rating for gift ideas from ladies who rock a variety of looks.

Not all ladies are the same of course…

I actually happen to have a lot of lady friends who don’t ride their own motorcycles but often ride pillion, so I did some real investigative journalism here. I’ve tried my best to make it This Gift Ideas list universal, but, still, it’s possible this list may or may not work for you. In which case, you’re on your own. Good luck.

And today, courageous service men and women fight overseas against radical threats.

Before You Rev up Gear up With Protective Riding Gear

At AMERiders we are all about that Epic Ride each summer, and ensuring that you are geared up and safe is our number one priority. So, before you rev up gear up with protective riding gear, for motorcycle riding. As you can tell this is an addition and add on to our last blog post about helmets which we said we would elaborate more on the head to toe aspect of Protective Motorcycle Gear. Before Revving up there are questions you need to ask yourself.

Questions to ask yourself before riding this summer

Is your Jacket fitting the way it should, is it loose or too tight, or is it showing signs of wear?
Protective Riding Gear
A Jacket and Trousers can save your skin

If the answer to this question is a yes, then you need to be looking for a new jacket for riding. Most of us have two jackets for riding with anyway, one for summer and one for winter. Our winter one usually is a bit bigger so we can have our thicker clothing on underneath it. However, our summer one is usually lighter and cooler and fits a bit closer than our winter one would.

When a jacket is too loose then it will move and not protect as it should, if it is too tight then it is distracting and can cause a distraction.  This can lead to laying your bike down which is never fun. Also, if your jacket is starting to signs of wear and there is a crash then it may not protect you as it should. It may shred when sliding across the asphalt giving no protection to that area at all.

Protective Riding Gear
Women’s Leather Jacket With Z/O Lining

At AMERiders we have a large selection of Jackets for Men, Women, and Children to choose from like this Women’s Leather Jacket With Zip Out Lining features Zip-Out lining and multi pockets. The classic style collar gives this jacket the fashionable look, plus a ton more features and is a great selection of one of our many Protective Riding Gear items in stock.

Another question to ask is about your chaps and riding pants.

The same questions you are asked about jackets can be asked about your pants and chaps. However, if chaps are too tight on the thigh it can cause you to lose circulation while you are riding. It will also make them uncomfortable if you “layer up”.  You should be able to slide your hand under the top of the chap while sitting down. If Chaps are too loose they may move or shift making removing some of the protection from the area they are exposing. If the pants are worn as with a jacket they will shred and remove protection from the area they are exposed.

If Chaps are too loose they may move or shift making removing some of the protection from the area they are exposing. If the pants are worn as with a jacket they will shred and remove protection from the area they are exposing.

Protective Riding Gear
Cream Dreamcatcher Women’s Chaps

When having your measurements done for fittings for your chaps remember this. Ensure your measurements are taken while wearing riding clothes and boots. Plus always ensure your measurements are taken snuggly but not tight. And allow one inch for expansion.

For Instance, these stylish Cream Dreamcatcher Women’s Chaps titled the ‘Dreamcatcher’ due to the Native American dream catcher design. Have bone, beads, fringes, and the leather is made from top-quality ivory colored leather to give it its final stylish look.

These are gorgeous chaps to be riding your motorcycle in, and a great choice for Protective Riding Gear. Again this is just one selection that can be made of our many pairs of chaps and riding pants we have in stock at AMERiders.

All bikers know the pain of a shrinking vest, regardless of whether it is denim or leather. No, we don’t mean shrinking from washing, it is the shrinking from the growing mid-section or the adding of layers underneath the vest during cold weather months. However, instead of buying another vest most bikers use Vest Extenders to extend out the size of the vest. At AMERiders we have a large selection of Vest Extenders in Leather Or Chain, to choose from that will fit any bikers unique style.

AMERiders are here to help you in Preparing for That Awesome Spring Motorcycle Ride that Is quickly Rounding the Corner and gaining on us. For some of you that may have already happened, as you may live in a warmer climate such as Florida like our Website manager does. As Spring rounds the corner it means one thing for bikers: time to hit the road with wheels burning! First things first before you take that first Spring Motorcycle Ride make sure your gear is ready. Don’t worry getting your gear ready for spring is not as difficult as you may think, however, it does take a bit of checking and searching.  Then you will be out in the wind having fun. Here are a few tips that AMERiders thinks will help get you ready.

Check your helmet!

If your (lid, brain bucket, or whatever you call your helmet) is older than 5 years, replacing it is something you might want to consider doing. The Snell Foundation and most of the helmet manufacturers will tell you that glues, resins and other materials that are used in manufacturing a helmet can break down over time. Things like hair oils, body fluids, and cosmetics, as well as normal “wear and tear” can all be contributors to this breakdown. Plus, every five years there are great advances in materials, designs, production methods and the standards that go into making and manufacturing helmets.

You may have heard some of your brothers and sisters say….”I heard that if a helmet hits the ground, it should be replaced.” This old biker’s tale isn’t necessarily true, but it isn’t really false either and it can get expensive. If you dropped your helmet on the garage floor don’t break out your wallet yet. You don’t necessarily need to replace it. Look at the manufacturer’s specs. If it says to replace it, follow instructions.

However, a common practice with today’s helmet technology is that if it’s not visibly cracked after it’s been dropped, then you don’t need to replace it. The problem with that is that is that you can’t see what is on the inside. The best thing to do is to go to your nearest dealership that you trust and have them inspect it. What we mean by you trust, is that you trust to check it and not say oh you need a new one just cause they want the money to sell you a new one.

Gloves – the unsung hero of apparel.

Your hands are just as important as you are, you know this as of you don’t have your hands you can’t ride the bike. Gloves are so much more than “something bikers wear to look the part.” In spring, finding the right motorcycle gloves to start your season are important. The type of glove is important whether Summer or winter gloves will depend on how chilly your Spring actually is in your area of the world.

When Spring rolls around and the temp goes up, it may be time to consider summer gloves. And therein lies a different choice. Do you go fingerless gloves or Kevlar-filled safety gloves? Riding can be a challenge in blistering heat, under the hot melting sun. Wearing gloves during warm-weather riding is important for hand protection, and to keep cool and comfortable, choose the right gloves for the season.

Riding Pants or Chaps

Women’s Leather Chaps With Pink Stripes

The battle lines are drawn. More often than not Americans will don chaps, however,  European and Japanese motorcycle fans seem to wear full riding pants. Is that the only difference? If you throw your leg over a Triumph cafe bike, do you have to only wear leather riding pants? Or if you’re on a Road King, is your only option chaps?

No, course it isn’t it’s your bike it is your choice in what you wear on your legs. When Spring hits, it may be a bit chilly so you’ll naturally have gear. But as the weather warms, you might be inclined to shed the layers. There’s no law against not wearing chaps or pants, but keeping safety and of course comfort in mind. Chaps and riding pants are definitely a safety choice when it comes to riding.

What about the Bike

You can’t forget your bike either is it geared up and ready to go for short or long rides? Some of us like to take those short rides but still, they may be longer than our usual run around town so we need to make sure that our Bike is geared up as well. Things like sissy bar bags, windshield bags, toolbar bags, and saddlebags are important things to help us get ready to ride.

Don’t forget though those long hauls we like to make which call for motorcycle luggage or if your just riding around town don’t forget you can use a backpack as well.

Last but certainly not least

Women’s Biker Boot Black

Boots! Your feet are what help you hold the bike up. They need to have good soles and great tread and needs to at least be waterproof as well as come up over your ankles in case the bike does go over they help to keep your ankles from being totally crushed.

The Bottom Line

As spring blossoms, your gear will help keep you warm and safe. Be sure to prepare for changing climates as well as finding your personal style. AMERiders has plenty of all of the above available for you here. Questions that you do need to ask yourself before you set out on your ride. Do your gloves need to be replaced? How is the tread on your boots? How old is your helmet and how many times has it been dropped? Think about these things and more before you set out on your ride.

12th Day of Christmas, 12 Days of Christmas Origin & Meaning Continued.

On the 10th Day of Christmas, AMERiders brings to you the 12 Days of Christmas and its Origin & Meaning Continued. We continue today with the 9th verse in the song. But before we do we want to thank everyone that shopped with us during our Winter Holiday Event.

To remind you the idea for these posts came to us because the boss loves the song and just loves to drive us nuts singing it. Yes, we’ve done the research and we know this starts on the 25th of December, but however you know that we at AMERIders are not normal so we are going to start this the 12 days before Christmas.  We apologize if what follows offends anyone it is not our intention just information that we found online.

Recap of Origin

In England, between 1558 and 1829, it was not legal for Catholics to practice their kind of Christianity in public or private. Being a Catholic was treated as a bad crime. If you even owned a Catholic Bible, you could be put in prison! Catholics were stopped from worshipping because King Henry VIII fell out with the Catholic Church and started his own ‘Protestant’ Church (what is now the Church of England). There were many people who were still Catholics and they worshiped in secret.

‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ was written in England at the beginning of this time. Some people think that it was written to help children learn about their Catholic religion. In the carol, the days are supposed to represent special symbols and have hidden meanings, because it was illegal to have anything in writing that would indicate that you were a Catholic.

But there’s NO evidence that this is true and it seems most likely just to be a folk song and that the special ‘Catholic’ meanings were added at a MUCH later date!

Variations of the lyrics

The earliest known version of the lyrics was published under the title “The Twelve Days of Christmas sung at King Pepin’s Ball”, as part of a 1780 children’s book, Mirth without Mischief. Subsequent versions have shown considerable variation:

-In the earliest versions, the word “On” is not present at the beginning of each verse—for example, the first verse begins simply “The first day of Christmas”. “On” was added in Austin’s 1909 version, and became very popular thereafter.

-In the early versions, “my true love sent” me the gifts. However, a 20th-century variant has “my true love gave to me”; this wording has become particularly common in North America.

-The 1780 version has “four colly birds”—”colly” being a regional English expression for “black”. This wording must have been opaque to many even in the 19th century: “canary birds”, “colored birds”, “curly birds”, and “Corley birds” are found in its place. Frederic Austin’s 1909 version, which introduced the now-standard melody, also altered the fourth day’s gift to four “calling” birds, and this variant has become the most popular, although “colly” is still found.

-The “five gold rings” may become “five golden rings”, especially in North America. In the standard melody, this change enables singers to fit one syllable per musical note.

-The gifts associated with the final four days are often reordered. For example, the Pipers may be on the ninth day rather than the eleventh.

Song verse explanation.

Also, all the symbols can be used by Protestants and other Christians, not just by Catholics! There was another song called ‘A New Dial’ (also called ‘In Those Twelve Days’), which goes back as far as at least 1625, which gave religious meanings to the 12 Days of Christmas, but NOT so people could practice their faith is secret. If you’d like to know more about this, please go to the 12 Days of Christmas page on snopes.com

12th Day of Christmas
The 12th Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me twelve drummers drumming

On The 12th Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me ‘twelve drummers drumming’ were the twelve disciples of Jesus (They could also mean the twelve points of the Apostles’ Creed!)

This is also one of the days of verses where things can start to get mixed up depended on the year or origin that the verse is being sung from. More information on this can be found here.

Other information.

The 12 Days of Christmas are now most famous as a song about someone receiving lots of presents from their ‘true love’. However, to get to the song there had to be the days to start with!

The 12 Days of Christmas start on Christmas Day and last until the evening of the 5th January – also known as Twelfth Night. The 12 Days have been celebrated in Europe since before the middle ages and were a time of celebration.

Each of the 12 Days traditionally is celebrated with a feast day for a saint and/or have different celebrations: Day 12 (5th January also known as Epiphany Eve): St. John Neumann who was the first Bishop in American. He lived in the 19th century.

We hope you have enjoyed our 12 Days of Christmas informational, and have a great and safe holiday.
