I wish to get a R6 or R1 later down the future, but as of right now Im just looking for a good starter bike that way get the experience and any accidents/drops/scratches out of the way. Something like a 250 or 500? or maybe even a SV?

Each brand is a bit different with different cushioning. So it's hard to figure but you could use their website as reference. You should hit me up whenever you need help or get a bike. I'm in the SW area.

Never buy a used helmet, you dont know if it has had a hard drop and has dented the inner foam padding. Also the price range you looking at the only thing that you will be getting is an off the wall brand or Bilt helmet. I personally dont trust Bilt, because of cheap quaility stuff they make. My first helmet was a 100 dollars and was on sale but it was an HJC helmet and it gets the job done. The helmet im looking at right now cost 200 dollars and is an HJC with a internal sun visor, i believe its its the IS 16. As for you size go down to cycle gear or any moto shop and just try on every brand, if they dont have a helmet you like at least you will know about what you head size is for the brand and can order on online. Keep each helmet on for a while and see if it has any pressure points that bother you, your going to be wearing it for a while if you buy and it needs to be comfortable to you.If you want a good solid helmet price is going to be at least $150 and up just like most moto related gear. Welcome to riding its expensive and addictive.

Thanks! yea, I wasn't sure at the price range i should be looking at. I've based my prices off of craigslist and such.
