My only opinion was to go blacked out but you already discounted that one. I think ghost rider is the way to go!

How about black with a lot of reflective fabric sewn in?

Aerostich has a type of leather suit but it only comes in black.

An all-new type of waterproof and breathable leather gear that outperforms traditional leathers. The Aerostich Transit Suit is made from an entirely new material - GORE-TEX® Pro Shell Leather — and provides higher levels of protection and comfort, is completely waterproof (no rain suit needed!) and wears noticeably cooler under a hot sun. The unique built-in hide technology is a breakthrough in toughness and durability, too. An Aerostich Transit suit will last longer than normal leathers and doesn’t soak up moisture so it never gets heavy. Always dries immediately after riding through severe rain. The suit contains a complete set of carefully fitted yet easily removable TF armor systems — elbow, shoulder, knee, hip and back pads — to provide superior impact energy absorption with less movement restriction. And the leather itself is ultra-supple, luxurious and flexible. So no matter what your local riding conditions and plans, or what the immediate climactic situation, you’ll be a lot more protected and comfortable. Technically, the Transit’s hides contain a new, unique, proprietary solar-reflective pigment that helps the suit wear up to 30º cooler than traditional leather gear, and this same dye technology also assists in ageing resistance so it will last longer than regular leathers. Only the finest cow hides are selected for this complicated processing and tanning technology. During manufacturing, powerful water repellants are added to the hides in two stages — so it’s permanently waterproof. The jacket’s main zipper is an all new molded-tooth waterproof type unlike any you’ve seen, and this zip increases the Transit suit’s everyday convenience and wearing functionality. Millions of micro-vents across the surface of the leather insure that during high activity the moisture on your skin will evaporate right through, even though the suit is worn fully zipped and closed, and, it’s — uh — waterproof. Did we mention that already? The Aerostich Transit Suit is completely waterproof. Yup. Jacket sizes 38–52. Pants sizes 30–44 waist. Imported.

FEATURES:

•Waterproof, Totally

•Except for scuba-diving riding under water

•Cooler in sun than regular leathers

•Supple, luxurious, top grain 1.2 mm micro-perforated and solid cowhide

•Stretch panels of leather and nylon

•Waterproof zippers

•Seven pockets, plus the usual Aerostich reflective and back vent

•Jacket zips directly to the pants

•Waterproof pant outseam coil zipper for easy use over boots

•Comfortable worn as pants (commando…), or as over pants

•All hides from formerly emotionally well-adjusted cows

So the first question is, "What are you thinking about for your next bike"? Is there a favorite color scheme there that could lend a clue as to what to advise you on?

Listen where thou art sitting
under the glassie, cool, translucent wave,
in twisted braids of lillies knitting
the loose train of thy amber-dropping hair.

I'm glad it worked for you this time. If your beauty mark were three inches lower, like Cindy Crawford's, you might not have as many tickets as you do. :D

I definitely agree. Sarah you're fast and funny. And with your new Miata you can be funny, fast and furious. Sarah, you do have a great disposition. When you were stuck at the top of the mountain with only us guys during the road block and the talk drifted to the boarder you dismissed it with ease. You let us know Josh was the only one you were going to take a shower with. When what's his name said that one woman is all we need (not me) you just rolled your eyes and gave a longing look for the rest of the unit.
