"On, Donner! On, Blitzen! On, Chewy! On, Tavo! C'mon, Becto!”

Reindeers beware! Tis the season to be shopping for gifts for those special guys in your life who love the smell of two-stroke oil and leaving long black streaks of rubber in their wake. (Once I saw a candle that supposedly smelled like two-stroke oil!) Luckily, J&P Cycles and Countersteer is here to help you out. We’re kicking off the week with a holiday gift guide for the guys, followed up by one for the gals later this week. Before that though, one more diddy from Cheech & Chong’s classic, “Santa Claus and his Old Lady” to get you in the holiday spirit.

Cheech: Aw, I'm trying to write a song about Santa Claus, man, but it's not comin' out...

Chong: About who, man?

Cheech: About Santa Claus, man. You know, Santa Claus, man?

Chong: Oh, yeah, man. I played with those dudes.

Cheech: What?

Chong: Yeah, last year at the Philmore, man. Me and the bass player sat in, man.

Cheech: Oh, hey, man, you think Santa Claus is a group, huh? No, it's not a group, man.

Chong: Wha? They break up?

Cheech: No, man. It's one guy, man. Y'know, he had a, a red suit on with
black padded leather choos... You know the guy, man.

Chong: Oh, yeah... He's with Motown, ain't he? Yeah, I played with that dude
too, man. He's a good singer.

Not only will these pipes really dress up a bagger, they’ll give horsepower and torque a kick in the pants, too. Then there’s that wonderful deep-seated, bass-filled note they emit. The Neighbor Haters are the pipes Cousin Eddie would rock on his Harley when he pulls up to Clark’s house for Christmas.

What do you think Santa wears the other 364 days of the year when he’s out riding his chopper? A black leather jacket, of course.

Kuryakyn Tech-Connect Complete Mounting Kit for Handlebars  $59.39  (Product Number 605-838)

Mobile phones are a valuable asset for riders. We can run nav through them, stream our favorite music, communicate with loved ones, and share our favorite rides through certain apps.

Vance & Hines Fuelpak FP3 is black magic in the world of air and fuel ratios.

Doesn’t get much more convenient than that. Fits perfectly in stockings, too.

Green Light Traffic Green Light Trigger   $29.99  (Product Number 510-1142)

Green’s a Christmas color, right? Motorcyclists love green because green means we can let the clutch out and go! Bad part is, not all stop lights are friendly. Some even refuse to recognize us. The Green Light Traffic Trigger has two strong neodymium magnets claimed to create an eddy current in embedded inductive-traffic detectors that tells the sensors to send the signal to turn green. No more getting stuck at traffic lights that don’t register motorcycles.

Arlen Ness Black Knurled Fusion Grips  $49.46  (Product Number 534-936)

The Trailmax is Dunlop’s 50/50 ADV tire that fits a long list of top-selling models. Wish I could have spooned a set of these on the Honda Africa Twin I tested. Hark! the herald ADV riders sing!

BikeMaster 2-into-1 Tire Gauge   $32.36  (Product Number 424-876)

Having properly inflated tires is one of the most important things for motorcyclists, but it’s also one that’s easily overlooked. I’ll bet if a rider had a spiffy BikeMaster 2-into-1 Tire Gauge they’d be more apt to stay on tip of checking their tire pressure. The BikeMaster 2-into-1 has a tread depth indicator, too, because tire wear is another thing tend to take for granted.
