Sock-sized holiday gifts from cheap to ch-ching!

CRG Arrow Bar End Mirror
Tired of looking at your elbows? The Arrow bar-end mirror from CRG is an eloquent and minimalist design that not only provides an unobstructed rearview, but also complements the look of your sportbike. Constructed of machined aluminum and automotive-grade glass, this $110 mirror is easily adjustable and can be mounted on the left or right handlebar.

Plas-Tec Polish
Few stocking stuffers can compete with the value of a $3 bottle of Plas-Tec cleaner and polish. The 1-ounce travel-size bottle contains an anti-fog and anti-static formula that is compatible with a variety of plastics and polycarbonates such as those used in motorcycle face shields, wind shields, dashboards and bodywork.

Aerostich Kickstand Critters
More reliable than a rock and more fun than a crushed soda can, a Kickstand Critter from Aerostich will keep your bike upright on hot pavement, dirt or gravel. The critters contain a 4-inch ABS plastic disk insert to keep your kickstand from sinking into soft ground and make for a furry, functional and fun gift for any rider. Choose Splattered Squirrel or Flattened Frog; they're both just $19.

Wheel Jockey
That stocking hook had better be sturdy, because this is one robust piece of equipment! The Wheel Jockey was invented to facilitate rear-wheel cleaning and chain maintenance without the use of a race stand. Once on the Wheel Jockey, your bike's rear wheel turns on ball-bearing rollers to provide easy access to the entire rim and chain. This $54 device can accommodate bikes weighing up to 750 pounds yet is small enough to store in a tool box or work bench drawer.

Trail Tech TTO Gauges
The TTO gauge from Trail Tech reports critical engine stats, making it a perfect gift for off-road riders, racers, engine builders and curious technical types alike. Select from hour meter, combined hour meter/tachometer (with maximum-rpm memory) or temperature (with maximum-temp memory), all starting at just $35. These gauges sport a big digital display yet are small enough to mount just about anywhere.

The $36.95 oil-fill plug comes pre-drilled for safety wire; the $69.95 mirror-eliminator plates keep your fairing stable at the track; and the $99.95 axle-block sliders provide crash protection.

Genuine Innovations Tire Repair Kit
Tire-repair kits are one of our favorite gifts to give, and something every rider would be happy to receive. Genuine Innovations' compact kit retails for $60 and contains everything you need to go from flat to fat, with enough compressed CO2 to inflate a 240mm bun to 30 psi. The zippered carrying case measures just 5 x 6.5 inches, so it will easily fit under your seat, in a tank bag-or in a stocking.

Fast Dates Calendar
Racing Superbikes like the Aprilia RSV4 and BMW S1000RR are hot, but in the 2011 Fast Dates calendar, the machines pale in comparison to their swimsuit-clad companions. This annual offering features numerous SBK and MotoGP racebikes, and while the glossy $16.95 calendar would be difficult to roll up in a stocking, it's good enough to warrant the effort to make it fit.

Brian Bergeron Designs Tire Ring
A tire-tread ring from Brian Bergeron Designs is a subtle-yet-stylish way to remind yourself and others of your passion for motorcycling. Each ring is handmade in your choice of silver, gold or platinum and incorporates design themes common to sport and touring street tires. Rings start at around $100 (for sterling silver) and would be an awesome trinket to find in the toe of a stocking on Christmas morning.

The light measure less than 6 inches long, weighs just 5.1 ounces, and is specially designed to be grasped while wearing gloves.
