I dug out some of my 25 year old gear to find the gloves are still in good condition. The helmet liner and pads are trash as expected 20 years past their 5 year life expectancy. I liked the Bieffe Pole Position motorcycle helmet quick release enough to shop for another only to find the company Bieffe is out of business.
Motorcycle Gear (have, need & want):
- (Have) 25 year old Bieffe helmet with disintegrated foam
- (Have) 25 year old Leather Jacket with broken zipper

- (Need) New Motorcycle Jacket, summer and winter
- (Want) New Motorcycle Gloves, summer and winter
- (Want) Motorcycle Shoes

I am really surprised at how well these OSI motorcycle gloves have held up stored away for 25 years. They will work fine until I get some new gloves with more protection.
I need advise on motorcycle communication devices, phone mounts, chargers and general accessories. A lot has changed in 25 years. I really liked my Bieffe helmet with quick release but apparently the company is out of business.
Wow, what year is this?
Emily, the 3 year old Rubik’s Cube genius (grown up now) will learn to ride a motorcycle on the 2022 Honda Grom. Emily was doing the BMX track at age 5 so a motorcycle shouldn’t be too difficult for her at 16.
Grom Girl? No she won’t like that name.
There certainly seems to be a color preference but one of these is not available in blue in the USA. Which one and what color should I get instead of blue, Matte Stealth Black or Storm Fluo?
If the Yamaha MT-15 was available in the USA I would have to consider a blue MT-15 over the Honda Grom. Not sure I would actually chose the MT-15 over the Grom but I would consider it to round out the MT trifecta. I would really just have to ride and compare the Yamaha MT-15 vs Honda Grom to see which is better.

The Grom is iconic and I’ll get one but look at this MT-15! If this one pictured here was in the dealer I would probably have to get it (and the Grom). Lucky for my wallet they are only sold overseas but this looks like a fun little bike!

2021 Yamaha MT-03 Color Options
Ok so what color MT03 to get?
I like the Blue and Blue/Gray best but they are not available in the USA.
The Matte Raven Black looks awesome but it doesn’t have any hi-vis color to catch the eye of inattentive drivers. So that leaves the Storm Fluo… or Matte Raven Black and hi-vis helmet and jacket when concern for drivers is high.
If only I could get Blue Wheels on the Matte Raven Black MT-03.
I believe the Team Yamaha Blue MT-03 pictured is actually a 2020 year model while the Blue/Gray is a 2021.

2021 Yamaha MT-07 Color Options
Well there is not much of a guess here, my first color choice for the MT-07 is Yamaha Team Blue which is available in the US on the MT07.
Matte Raven Black is my second choice and would look pretty sweat with blue wheels.
Although Jimmy from the band “Jimmy is Cool” and my son Ryan really like Storm Fluo on both the MT-03 & MT-07, I don’t think I’m sold on it yet but it does look much better in person than in photo.

2022 Honda Grom Color Options
The 2022 Honda Grom comes in 4 color options: Matte Black Metallic, Pearl White, Queen Bee Yellow, Candy Blue.
ABS only comes in Blue and Blue only comes with ABS for $200 more.
I am kind of torn because I really like the blue but I think I would rather not have ABS for two reasons.
1) We will be taking it off road as much or more than on road.
2) It may be best to learn proper brake operation on before getting ABS brakes and this Grom will be used partially as learner bike.
The Yellow and White just don’t do it for me, by picture at least. I have yet to see those colors in person though.
So it may have to be a Matte Black Metallic Grom for us as hi-vis will be less of an issue because I don’t intend for the Grom to be ridden near drivers and Emily will be dressed up like a highlighter anyway.
