I only ride on loose stuff if I have to. I had to ride over 10 miles of loose gravel in the middle of somewhere Nevada where they were working on the road. Very tense for a couple of miles but before it was over it was trucking along around 35 (didn't want too many rock chips in the paint) and feeling pretty relaxed. Dirt or gravel isn't too bad if it's not loose and deep but watch the curves and keep it smooth. Be careful on loose surfaces, the 'Wing is a heavy machine and only really at home on pavement.
As for your helmet headsets, there are several brands that will work just fine for your bike, all 'Wings use the same plugs and sockets. Edsets, Chatterbox and J&M are three brands and there are more. Just Google those brands and you can find prices and models. They all make models for open face and closed face helmets. Pretty easy to install in most any helmet.
