What you've got is better than nothing, but I suggest that (assuming you're in the northern hemisphere, and winter is pretty much here for you) you wait patiently for some good Dainese leather to pop up for sale used, and jump on that for a jacket. There are lots of other reputable brands, but once you've had the best you won't want to even look at other brands. There are sizing charts online that are very accurate, and that should give you an idea of the size you need (they go numerically, as opposed to sm/md/lg).


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

I rode an R6 as a first street bike, but I should've died several times.. I got lucky though, and I only lost my license for 6 months.
