Rainbow suit-ers?

Are you color concious when you atgatt? Or do you mix and match ?

I'm usually monochromatic, more or less.

My bike is mostly black with a little bit of gray, so I like to reverse the colors with my gear. Mostly gray or a similar color with a little black. About the only thing that doesn't match is my bright orange icon mil-spec vest. Darn navy trying to keep me alive.

When I first started to wear gear I had to color coordinate with my bike. As bikes came and went and I got more focused on safety and quality gear it didn't matter anymore. Now I just pick the best gear I have for the type of ride I am going on and color doesn't matter.

After many years and many dreams I have realized my goal of riding in all 50 states!

Now the rest of the world!

I guess it was the elbow thing. They don't straighten out that much anymore. too many crashes.
Yes there was. Phobman saved a Harley (female) rider from being stuck with a fallen over bike!

Red bike, black boots, black pants, silver jacket, blue gloves, flat black helmet. I'm a grab bag o' ATGATT

I've had the bag of jellybeans coloured suits before but after a few crashes and searches for neon yellow shoe polish I've reverted to grey/black with some white and red to "brake" up the monotony.

My dayglow safety vest against my CE black leathers confirm I'm color match challenged.

But, of course:
Honda 919-turquoise jewelry. Drop earrings, cuff bracelets. The color of the rocks makes the bike POP. Unique, sophisticated, stylish.

Kawi Sherpa-stick with silver and earth tones. Ambers, browns. Dependable, not so "in your face", yet ready to go wherever/whenever.

Yamaha DT-250- anything goes! Layer muti-colored strands of beads. Lots of reds, oranges, and yellows. Show the world what a fun lovin' gal you are!

I will be glad to answer any accessorizing questions, as long as they don't include the words bath and aplique.

Personally, all my "outfits" are designed by Kris Krome.

Shorts are fine, but perhaps wear some that are a little bit longer when you ride your Harley.
Flip flops work anywear with shorts. There are SO many new styles of flip flops available now! Be creative with color.

Kristen, Out STANDING accessorization.

I was all yellow aginst my yellow cb750. My wife made me go red when I bought the niner. She soooooo twisted my arm.

She thinks the red is easier to see than the yellow was. Odd.
