Best advice is don't get a ZX6 as a first bike, way more power tha you need to start and too twitchy for a newbie.

Get a 500 for your first year or two, plenty of used one around, cheaper to insure, might allow you to get it sooner.

Training, gear and a level head also needed.

MSF and licence cost vary widely from one state to the next.

Do a google search for MSF and you should find it and links to your local MSF courses, same with DMV wich should give you the info you're looking for.

Frame sliders are essentially bolts that screw into your frame and stick out from the fairings ( on sportbikes ), usually nylon ( plastic ) heads on the bolts will keep the fairing from touching the ground should you drop your bike. They're reasonably priced and a good investment but don't expect them to allow you to slide your bike safely down the road they are not always effective ( depends on how your bike goes down ).

As for gear, there are so many places so many options no one best spot. I suggest you find a dealer near you and establish a relationship, you might pay a little more but usually the more often you go back the better the deals get.

Thankfully at least the insurance rates keep a lot of these squids from getting in over their heads.

But something should be done to keep these kids from killing themselves.
