Um tell him to go and take a course like Pacific Riding school because I guarantee you he will crash it his first minute riding it.

He can probably sell it for 3000 at least. That's if he doesn't crash it lol.
Like socialenemey said tell him to take a riding course.

thanks!! he told me the riding course at whatever pacific thing is going to cost aroun 800 and he has to attend to it daily for a month or something. he has work and school thats the reason why he just wants to get private lesson. ( i never even heard of private bike lesson)i am going to convince him to sell it b4 he even touches it...

Pacific riding school takes one week and they have morning and evening classes. And after the fourth day he will be able to ride on the road by himself without a supervisor after he gets his learners (assuming he has a class 5).

don't be so negative. I never took a riding school when i first learned and didn't drop the bike or anything. But even though this is my 2nd year riding, my PRS classes start june 8th

I just finished my second class of theory at PRS today. So far, I can say my money is being well spent! I hear it gets better when I get to the parking lot section

edit: yes course is almost $800, but how much is your life worth to you? There was a guy in the previous class who has ridden for 25 years. He took the course and said it's unbelievable how much he still learnt from the course
