So I'm going to buy a 1979 Honda CB650 for my first bike. I've been hoping for this all during high school. Now that I'm in college and I have some left over cash I can finally afford one. Have to wait one week because the guy I'm buying it from is away in Cali. I might die from the anticipation. It needs some repairs but its cheap. the main thing is it has the classic look I want. Any on to my question. What advice would you guys give for purchasing helmets? What brands and stores are good/cheap? HJC seems to have a few, and I know they are good. I also read that this company Gmax makes one good helmet called the GM68S with red LED marker lamps on it. Also, anyone know of any only retailers that sell cheap parts other than ebay or craigslist? Any tips for the beginner? One last thing, anyone know about any cheap basic insurance providers? I'm sure a 19 year old college student wont be given a break but I'm willing to try...
