Jacket color?

Does anybody know which manufacturer has blue perforated leather jackets that match Yamaha blue? My local shop pretty much carries just Joe Rocket and the blue is not even close.

Thanks

Hi MrYamaha-

Do yourself a favor and stick with a black leather jacket. You'll sell that motorcycle someday or you'll want to wear that jacket someplace other than on a motorcycle.

Colored leathers are nearly always a disappointment. Stick with basic black for color retention, ease of matching, flexibility of wear, and ability to transition between multiple motorcycles. They look good while driving convertible sportscars, too. You won't regret that decision.

While bluejays advice is the best one...if your set on matching, Hein Gericke is a nearly perfect match to the Yamaha blue. Hard to find though...

Yea my friends have Hein Gericke Yamaha jackets for their R6 and R1...matches perfectly...they had to have a dealer order it direct from Yamaha though.

Thanks for the reply. I guess I should have mentioned that I ordered one of those jackets through work, but it just did not fit me properly. Thanks though.

Great if you dont mind looking like every other individual on a Harly or want to be badass out there on crussers.
My red, black and white JR jacket is a leftover from my 95 900ss
and is not a good match for my 04 RC51. Nor my yellow, black and silver Teknic from www.mawonline.com closeout page for 1/2
off that great of a match with my yellow 998.
But for the most part, cars notice me and rearly pull out in my line.

You may have guest I spent to much on my bikes and went sale shopping for gear.
