Hello and welcome to MH
For gear go here for free stuff until you can afford new
http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=216439
To go right push on the right bar, to go left push the on left bar. This called counter steering and you learned how to do it when you learned how to ride a bicycle. Use your front brake mainly and use the rear brake lightly. Look where want to go, not where you are going. Always look far ahead and when in traffic behind a car, ride to one side of then lane or the other so you look around the car and see whats going on up ahead. Take your advice from riders who have been riding a long time, the older/wiser the better.

You will crash eventually so get geared up. And remember this, there two kinds of motorcycle riders. Those who have crashed and those that are going to.

There are old riders and there are bold riders but there are no old and bold riders.

Welcome to MH! Parking lots are great learning areas. You should consider taking the Rider Safety Course. It'll help you build confidence and teach you certain do's & don'ts on the common roads. Good Luck!

I've ridden with Morgstang and I'm on a 1995 Harley Davidson Heritage Chopper with a fat 300mm rear tire and Martin Brother Exhaust...

They have a good group of riders, with great paces for everyone

Thanks for the tips everyone! I have already taken the MSF course. Also I have two questions and maybe some more later:

What kind of gas should I be filling it up with?

What jacket brand carries the smallest xsmall size? (I have tried on some xs such as Joe Rocket, Sedici, and Icon, but it is still fairly loose)
