Man Cave Must-Haves For Motorcyclists

8 essential items to help you create a proper chill zone in the off-season.

We all prefer the riding time to the downtime, but there’s definitely a benefit to carving out a place at home where you can kick back. Man cave, lounge room, chill zone—call it what you want, but these areas should all serve up ultimate comfort and relaxation. The room can be an ideal place to seek calming solitude or a spot to gather with friends—whatever your intentions may be, you’re going to want to get a few essentials that can really make the space that much more enjoyable. Motorcycle riders will obviously like to include items that promote the riding lifestyle, but there are goods that go beyond the two-wheeled theme that could be considered as well. Appeal to all your senses by choosing the right mixture of decor and accessories that deliver the specialized sense of style you’re looking to achieve. To help, we’ve gathered eight items you’ll be sure to dig.

There’s no better way to display pride in your ride of choice.

Acrylic Humidor Jar w/ Humidifier

Acrylic Humidor Jar w/ Humidifier
Storing your stogies with care.Amazon

Sometimes nothing beats the relaxation of kicking back with a good cigar. The only thing that could spoil this sacred time is the quality of the cigar itself—especially if it has completely dried out, which really compromises its flavor and overall smoking experience. Take care of your stogies with a humidifier, so when the time comes to fire one up, your cigars will be in optimum smoking condition. Humidifiers don’t have to be expensive though—this one here rings up at just over $20, and is large enough to store 18–25 cigars at a controlled 70-percent humidity environment.

There is another solution to getting the look you want with peel-and-stick wood paneling. Yep, this is real wood, and it features industrial-strength adhesive strips on the back, so installation is a breeze. If you are looking to cover only a small area—or even an entire accent wall—these paneling kits are definitely an option that should receive serious consideration.
