So I'm finally doing what I've been saying I've wanted to do since I turned 18. I'm taking the Texas mandated motorcycle safety course, and then the one for the Army, in about 2 weeks. After this I want to go find a bike. So my question is, what would you guys recommend as a first motorcycle? I'm probably looking at the 600cc engine size and nothing more for the first one, and something that is used. How many miles is "average"? I've seen 2007's with 3K to 10K and didn't know what "high mileage" is for a motorcycle. Also, if you can, give me some opinions on gear (jacket, pants, gloves, helmet) that you've had good experiences with. Thanks ahead of time for any info you guys provide me, I really appreciate it!
