Coordinating apparell

Well let me know your opinions, I currently have two KBC VR-1 helmets that I had with a previous bike. I really like the helmets as far as fit and comfort. The problem is that they dont cosmetically match my bike of course. Personally I dont ride to look good, but I do like it when things match. Here's the main reason that I have kept them, I had a friend say how well they stood out in trafic. He said that its the first thing you notice and that it had to be a safety factor. Well I know that cagers will pull out in front of a red poka dotted semi, but what the heck, I figure the more the better?? My bike blends in being grey and sliver, and I have charcol colored jacket, the helmet really stands out over these. Just curious to what you guys think??? Also Im kinda a cheap a$$ and dont want to shell out of two new helmets jsut because of the color. Plus my wife would kick my butt if I spend any more money on the busa...

Well since you asked.

Being a slave to fashion I had to get a new helmet when I got the 'busa. (Ok so the old one was a black half-helmet.)

I ended up getting white and silver to match my '06 LE and let me tell you I am neither squidly or gay.

On top of that I get quite a few compliments on my fashion arrangement.

I say bright green helmets need to go but that is just me (and my wife.)

Show us a pic of the bike!

My 'busa is black and silver

My helmet is the Shoei Hayabusa helmet in purple and black

My leathers are red and black

My street jacket is blue, white, and black


Keep the green. I notice people with green attire and bikes almost instantly.

I agree completely, if you want to be seen immediately stay with the green.

I suppose you could sell the green ones and use the proceeds toward new, color coordinated lids if you just had to match. I kinda like the green & being a little different..........

who cares man. As long as you use what you got then your good. Anyone that says anything to you about it go read there odometer and you'll probably be justified. Other than that if you get an extra couple bucks in the next year you can always upgrade the helmet then. Or upgrade the busa. I would put in the bike before I put it in the color of a helmet.
