Default need help deciding on riding suit color scheme

I had a question because I can't decide on color for my riding suit i'm about to purchase.

Would you ALWAYS try to match your suit with your bike?
What are your opinions? If I had a yellow bike and bought a blue suit would that make me look retarded?

On the other hand, a guy with a blue bike and a perfectly matching blue suit - would that look a bit dorky?

I know it's a weird question and i'm not insecure - just can't make up my mind before I spend 1500 bucks so i thought I'd get some opinions here.

I personally don't like too matchy smatchy... similar colors, maybe a touch of blue or red to go with the bike. Like with my new HP4 that I saw today, was thinking all or mostly black would go great! maybe a touch of white or blue on the suit. But definitly not a BMW suit! HELL NO!! That is dorky and retarded in my eyes. Might as well get matching BMW underwear while you are at it!

Probably too much red to go with all this blue! But it would work. Sometimes it is good to break up the colors. The way you change bikes, you better of just going black!!

I couldn't help myself. I went with the A* blue race replica for my hp4 (just ordered from TJ). I'll be getting matching white/blue GP tech gloves, blue/black supertech R boots to match, and the white/blue shark race-r pro lid.

I'm just picky like that and always have to match. If I change bikes, then ill buy more gear that will match, lol!

I had the black/gold 09 R6. To match I had a black/gold Jordan 2K7 jacket n gloves, all black Joe rocket boots, and the black/gold carbon Shark RSR2...

I kno.....don't judge me!!

Too much white and you end up looking like a hobo when it gets dirty I usually get black or darker colors.

White gloves get very dirty, very quickly, and they never get fully clean. Mainly in the palm area, so if you get black palms with a white back side, you might be ok.
