you are worried about matching colors? On a DL650?

Just buy gear that fits from newenough. If you want to color-match, get a goldwing.

Who sits on the back ?

This is the kind of question that makes me laugh.

My question before being able to give you an answer is,

Which one of you reaaaaally rides on the back ??????????????

Maybe with your internet availability you might look and read just a little more before asking a question such as this, particularly for colors. Matching Pinks would look great.

Serious note now.

Check out some other threads previously posted about clothing in the Gear Section. I am sure they will be very helpful.

If in doubt, get better gear than you think you need.
Considerations,
- Liners, warmth (I buy gear with but never use, actually remove)
The fit with them is important. (e.g. long T-shirt and jeans) then when
riding with fleece jacket, long shirt, jeans and stockings, etc and no
warmth lining, then they still fit.
- breath-ability and venting
- padding and wear pads
- helmet hood and neck closure
- Kidney belt and zip together jacket/pants
- reflective (you can always buy little stick on patches from e.g. REI)
- ZIPPER quality !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a Tourmaster Epic Jacket and Tourmaster Caliber Pants (black).
The jacket is excellent, the pants are suffering a little but then again I don't treat them easy, off roading.

When we ride two-up, I spend about 40% of the time on back. It's a nice place to nap while Mrs. Tedder is piloting.

Here are a few of the wife and I.....with the Wee in view.

We have identical gear....kinda cool.

She refers to our gear as our "lego man" outfit.

I like us having "Adventure Riding" gear.

Riding Two Up?

I know, I know... what I am going to say will most likely upset some people! Chics on the back are cool... when there is a sportbike, g-string, and some ass present... as far as ADVenture riding... tell her... "get your own bike", and then we can go!! And as far as letting the lady drive your bike... AHHHHH. Why let your baby be driven by anyone other than you??

However, on a serious note!! I guess I might be some what jealous... my GF isn't into riding... hell not into Motorcycles... maybe its time for an up grade... oh and matching pinks... definitely (not)

I let my wife pick out her own gear. As long as it keeps her warm and dry I don't care.

+100

I took my wife to our local shop and spent a few hours finding what she wanted. She picked colors that she liked, gear that was comfortable. I made sure the gear had proper protection and fit correctly.

We made a fun day of it.

That's the way to do it. When you want to get more gear, and you will, check out Newenough.com. Cheap and good gear, as long as you dont mind last years stuff. I know I don't.
