HJC Full face helmet, alpinestar jacket and gloves. An experienced sport bike rider friend of mine came along to help me out in getting a good bike and proper gear.

No offense, but he didn't do you many favors in helping you pick out a first bike. Glad to see you got gear and are taking the MSF course. For your sake, I hope you're an exception to the statistics. Good luck!

Yea I couldn't have said it any better, time will tell and do hope you were born with the ability to ride or at least not make any grand mistakes.

Just thought i would check in, Been a bit busy as of late with work. Almost 2,000 miles on the bike in roughly a month and 1/2. Took the Msf course, and found it to be very useful. Took a nice trip down to Ft. Lauderdale from Orlando, almost 3 hours each way- That was fun. been able to keep my self out of trouble with only a couple of close calls due mostly to other drivers not paying attention. Cant seem to stay off the bike,every chance i get i am on it.
