So I just got my white bike today and was thinking about getting all white gear. White helmet, jacket, gloves, pants and boots.

Since I'm new to bikes and gear is it ok to match or like a no no? Also since I live in FL I was thinking white would be cooler not sure if that's true or not. How fast would the white get dirty? Can you just wash the gear in the washing machine or are they dry clean only?

Also I wish there was like a package deal for head to toe gear? Are there any?

With textile u can wash on the gentile cycle then hang dry. If you take care they will fade but fade evenly. You know to that nice worn in but loved look.

If you like the look then go for it, white also makes you way more visible than black, increasing your safety. As far as how dirty the gear gets and how to take care of it, it depends on where you ride (I never get dirty riding on the street) and cleaning depends on the gear you get (leather/textile/whatever) I get all my gear from www.RevZilla.com, they have lot's of great deals. Also, gear from last year is usually on sale everywhere to make room for new gear. (but it's just as good, just last years model)

http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/dainese-laguna-seca-pro-leather-suit I ride the Snake on Mulholland Hwy, and a lot of guys wear these (in white too), they have perforation through out the leather to keep you cool, and it's the best protection you can buy. :D

That may be a bit extreme on the white, lol. Yes, white is always cooler than darker colors. I started off with a dark helmet, black gloves, black/grey reflective jacket, brown boots and jeans. Now I have a white/red/black helmet, white/red/black jacket, black/white gloves, black boots and jeans. But I went with generic gear first because I didn't know how I was going to decal my bike. This is what I look like (My head is pulled back because I was doing a u-turn so I look kinda retarded IMO)
