Yes and no for me. I usually don't replace my gear till it needs replacing, which at the time, I'll (try) to match it better with the bike colour I have at the time. Then of course, the next bike is a different colour and it's mismatched again...lol.
Speaking of which, my Joe Rocket Ballistic (v1.0) jacket it a tad old (like 14 years!) so I've been looking at getting a new jacket. Also my helmet lining is falling apart and I need a new helmet (but can't find one that's "comfortable" and meets my safety standards).
In which case, my new gear should "match" my Guzzi.
