With a black helmet, and a green bike it sounds like you can use some visiability to me.
See this one in bright hi-vis yellow:

Black/yellow and yellow/green are complimentry colors, but I guess you want to look like a dolphin? I don't think I have seen a crap aqua green motorcycle jacket.

Black goes with anything including a green bike and to add the "Dolphin" look simply smear it all over with vaseline for that just jumped out of the water-look.

Actually it is Pearl Teal Green w/Candy Atlantic Blue. Quite a good looking bike if you ask me. Doesn't blend in with all the other Black & Silver bikes out there.

Doesn't matter what you wear. If you are a dolphins fan, you are already cooler than anyone else out there. Go Phins!

go BLACK with reflective lining for more visibility and especially for night time riding... Mine is blue/gray, and I still have black helmet and black textile, armored jacket.

If he is wearing a flat black helmet and gets a black jacket to ride in Miami, I seriously doubt that.

Really folks, use some imagination, (unless you like being just another cruiser rider with a black helmet and black leather jacket.....)

A Dolphins fan, huh? Maybe a jacket that says LOSER across the back.... Just ribbing ya.

Can't think of any makers that have that shade of green. I like the Blue that Joe Rocket uses, and light silver would probably match pretty good.
