I have some new questions:

What's a good address or area that has nice roads to cruise around with not many cars? I heard of places but I always depend on GPS lols it'll help if someone could please share an address?

Not sure when the last oil change was on this bike, but how much should I expect to get charged?

The clutch and brake levers are a bit far for my hands to reach, is it possible to adjust them closer?

Are there any places in Houston that has good deals or discounts for ordering a jacket?

Sorry for the many questions, but thank you again for all yalls help!

Call a local shop and ask if they could hook you up with a discount if you buy it through them instead of ordering it online, not everywhere will say yes to that. If not look at the closeout pages on revzilla and sportbiketrackgear, that's what I do.

As far as an oil change I spend $50 for synthetic oil and a filter and I do it myself. A shop would charge you around $80 for a synthetic oil change, cheaper if you use regular oil obviously.

you can buy adjustable levers

There are many roads around just depends on how far you want to ride before you actually start having fun.

If your new i would ride with a friends who's comfortable going slower. Being on back roads by your self can be dangerous.
Oil change is simple and you should learn how to do it your self. Depending on what side of town im pretty sure you can find someone to help you. The cost to do the oil change on my 300 with new filter is about $50

Brake and clutch are not adjustable on the 300 so you could replace with aftermarket.

For a jacket you can go to cycle gear or a few other local shops and find your size in different brands. Every brand is slightly different in sizing and some fit better than other. I find revzilla to be a great place for gear when i have to order online.

About how long should I expect for the blue title to come in the mail after I paid the fees? Also what will it say outside the envelope of who it is sent from?

It will come from the DMV and about a month I'd say, they don't really do anything fast

Is only one headlight supposed to be on if the hyper beams are not switched on? I see that most bikes only have one light on, on one side only?

It's normal for most bikes to have only one of the headlights on, and the other being a dedicated high beam.

When do y'all use the high beams? Also do I have to look for a certain rear stand since my bike is smaller or is it for all sizes?

Only when it is needed, just like when you drive your car.

To be honest, I never knew the stands to be limited to one size. I've used the same stand multiple times on multiple bikes, with minor changes... except for the current bike I have. They will not work on wide tire (280mm+) bikes.
