Trail riding gear??

Well, I plopped a deposit on a dual purpose honda today(CRF230L) and plan to pick it up some time next week.

It's gonna be my first trail bike, and I don't know jack about what gear I should be looking for besides the obvious.

Stopped by cycle gear and to see the lids and they had this bad boy on sale:
standard

AC/DC baby!! yeah!
Could'nt pass that up.

Anyways, what else should I be looking for???
I feel like a noob all over again.

I have allot of this gear for sale if you want used gear.

Might look into a EVS race collar for neck support if you have not been into it long. Helps support the neck in a crash.

Hit me up if interested and i can send you a list of what i have with price list. Ill let it go cheap
