*UPDATE* He dropped it. :roll: Trying to mono. :roll: x2 He still has chicken strips big enough to feed a family but he thinks he's got what it takes to pop wheelies no worries. I havent seen the bike yet, but it's still rideable but apparently VERY scratched. Perhaps the damaged ego from riding a dropped bike around will be good for him. *ORIGINAL* Hello all, I'd like to throw a problem out to the infinite wisdom of the NR community. :grin: I have a workmate who recently became unrestricted. He NEVER owned a learner bike, and has ONLY ridden during the Learners course. He went out and bought a brand spanking new CBR600RR. :roll: Nothing wrong with the BIKE, (actually I'm jealous!) but EVERYTHING wrong with HIM being on it. He has scared himself enough already to know that he has much to learn about riding. (he wobbles around roundabouts, too scared to lean over) He now *finally* acknowledges that he needs help in learning to ride, He and I are heading out on some casual instructional rides as soon as his 1000K service is done. I'm no expert either, but with a couple of years, 20,000Ks and a HART advanced course under my belt I'm certainly able to pass on some wisdom. HOW do I teach him? WHAT am I looking for? What do I NEED to drill into his head and what can I let slide for the time being? There are a BUNCH of new riders at my work, with more people getting bikes every month, so this is going to be a persistent problem for me. Is anyone willing to join some (yawningly slow) rides with him and others to help reduce the likelihood of another 'rider down' or worse yet, RIP thread? HELP!
