10. Knobby Knife, $64.95
We’ve called out the Knobby Knife in the past, and we still think it is a great gift idea because it can help save you money. The Knobby Knife restores knobby lugs that have been rounded off by allowing the user to get them back into square and sharp shape. The electric-powered knife features a 100-watt heating element that heats the tip to over 500 degrees, hot enough to carve through rubber like it’s a holiday bird. The Knobby Knife’s patent-pending blade is made of high-quality tool steel for durability’s sake. The manufacturer claims that Knobby Knife users can get as much as five times more life out of a knobby tire before it needs to be replaced. It’s almost, but not quite, the gift that keeps on giving.
9. AO Coolers Carbon Cooler, $89.95 (24-pack), $99.95 (36-pack)
Yeah, we know, for some of you in the rust belt, seeing a cooler under the tree in the dead of winter is like adding insult to injury. But fear not. Spring will be back around soon, and then there won’t be anything much cooler than AO Cooler’s Carbon Cooler (yeah, we saw what we did there too). The Carbon Cooler is available in multiple sizes, but we’re focusing on the 24-pack and 36-pack models. These soft-sided coolers are claimed to pack twice the insulation of competitive coolers, and they’re guaranteed to hold ice for 24 hours in 120-degree weather. They also feature a leak-proof liner and a convenient side pocket that can be sealed to keep dry items dry.

Pretty cool!

3. Polisport Folding Bike Stand, $78.95
Bike stands are great for propping up dirtbikes that don’t have sidestands, but they’re notoriously bulky and take up a not insignificant amount of space when not in use. Polisport has engineered a way around that dilemma with its folding bike stand. The injection-molded polypropylene stand features a durable injection-molded rubber to provide ample traction to your bike’s frame rails or skid plate. Despite its light weight, the Polisport stand is plenty stout, capable of holding motorcycles up to 550 lbs., yet when not in use it quickly and easily folds up for easy storage in your shop or truck.

1. Motorsport Products Lay-Over Stand, $66.95
Washing your bike’s undercarriage is most effective when you can lay the machine over. Some riders are willing to lay the machine completely on its side, which works but can also cause damage to the end of your handlebar grip, your fork tubes and possibly cause a fuel spillage. You can also use your bike stand if you have one, but the same rule applies as far as grip and fork damage go.
That’s what makes Motorsport Products’ Lay-Over Stand such a neat item. It’s a simple and convenient way to put your bike in the proper leaning position for easy undercarriage washing or maintenance on skid plates, chain guides and the like. The patent-pending, heavy-duty aluminum stand is fully adjustable from 14 inches to 20 inches, and it features a grip cradle to keep from tearing your bike’s grip. Its stainless steel hardware and silver-anodized finish inhibit rust, which means it can handle repeated power washings. Or you could just wrap it in lights and garland to make it a holiday tree.
