Place to learn to ride a bike

So my GF has stated that she wants to learn to ride motorcycles. I figured I'll start her on the dirt bike before the street bike as I know its going to get dropped more than once.

Anyone know a place around West Houston or Katy that has an open field or something (non pavement or sand) where I could take her and the bike so she could learn?

let someone else teach her on a surface she will be riding on with a bike similar to what she will be riding.

she will need the course anyway to get her M endorsement.

Motorcycling in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect.

+1. One of the biggest problems we encounter is when someone trys to teach a student before they get to class. Either they end up wrecking and then being scared as during class or they come in with a whole lot of bad habits that we have to try and correct.

Keep in mind the MSF Basic RiderCourse makes the assumption that a person has never been on a motorcycle.

i would send her to a msf but she has no interest in riding in the street but only dirt.
