I would talk to bill at wild west honda, call him up and tell him you are from motohouston. Ask for some close out pricing helmets, i got one for VERY cheap there.

Vs none?

Seems like he is doing the right thing trying to get geared up. Not everyone can afford a 800+ lid and 1,000+ track suit and he may not even need that kind of gear.

I'm not saying don't go used, but there's a difference between buying a cheap ebay knock off helmet vs a DOT approved one. Buty something that has some history with protection. You do need a 800 + lid especially if you can't afford it; however, you can still buy a pretty decent one is all I'm saying.
