Buy a cheap dirt bike, maybe a CRF100 and do some trail riding for a few months, that will help her greatly.

don't want mine to turn pro I couldn't afford it.

but learning to ride two wheels get her on a bicycle. Bicycle is the best practice for the msf they are better at teaching shifting and braking then you are.

Allen Parkway today at 4pm.

Allen parkway is very bumpy and has a ton of crazy turns, it's expecially fun going double the posted limit, plus some change.
Everybody will be trying to get home early so make sure your ready by 4 so you get the peak of the traffic.

If she can make it to Shepherd, she no longer needs to take the MSF course
