He needs to build muscle memory, build better habits, understand his bike more and learn to look through a turn. Thats going to take a lot of time, so instead of trying to learn it with one session with someone off a forum I would say go to the track. Go to ridesmart or whoever but they all have great instructors that are far more knowledgeable than most the guys posting in this thread
I can ride behind & coach what I know for as long as he wants.

The man needs urgent training. Whatever way he chooses I hope he checks his ego at the door and listens to whoever is going to instruct him.

Umayr how do you have so many posts??? You csnt sit in front of the computer all day wearing full leathers on motohouston giving advice on topics you know nothing of....lmao. just messing with ya man...haha
Oh wow this guy runs like 1:58 1:55's best at msrh. And youre coming in here calling me slow

I think a TD or two would improve confidence/skills, but if ego gets in the way than nothing will help. I was at the track within a month of owning a bike so he should be fine in lvl1 with the right attitude. Also crashing on the street that much is rolling the dice with your life every time.

Idk why that one dude is saying they don't teach basics in level 1 and teach advance techniques, because they just teach the basics
Believe me that sounds great but i dont have enough money for that.

Ok.

We can both agree he needs someone with more expertise to help him with his riding.

Maybe the msf course again could help. But from my experience the msf course barely taught me how to ride a bike. I started doing td's with only a couple months of riding experience and I learned a lot more there then I did on the street

I'm not denying that track days could help but based on what other people are saying he likes to get in over his head. 351Fox hot the nail on the head. "With the right attitude" it could be helpful. Either way he will figure it out. DID you miss the part where he said thst he would love to do track days but $$$.
When your at the track and you see me don't turn your head and keep walking like you don't see me....lol. you better come up to me and call me tmgp superstsuperstar to my face. You csnt miss me bro. I'm much bigger then you and my name is on my windscreen....lmao
