Take him to the Fe'ders, and Lil Streets, but if he cant ride at All,...Hit the Empty Parking Lots and Practice for few days before getting on them streets....I Personally dont really know the riding ability of your other 1/2...simply "a Newbie" said by You, doesnt really reveal his ability to Ride and or to avoid an accident..."remember you/him are riding in Houston", but then since your profile point out that you RIDE / own a motocycle, why dont you accompany him and or train him before fatal?.

Dont get me wrong, I mean this is Jus one amongst my Advice(s).

i told him to join, and i assume he will at some point but i want to ride tonight. yes, i have my own bike. i've been riding for a few years. i have accompanied him. his main issue is getting comfortable on two wheels i think. he seems really tense when he rides and is still trying to get used to the clutch. i was asking for advice on how to get him to that point and stop worrying so much, i guess. sorry for the confusion. i might see about getting him out to pp1, but i've been on rides out there before, and not sure if he would be down for that.

It just takes seat time. Maybe a long ride not in the crazy city streets?

Yea just time in the saddle is going to clear that. get him out of the city on a sunday when traffic is alot slower. Just get lost and find your way back. Thats what ive done to chicks that ride by the time we get back they are either comfortable on the back or dont want to ride again LOL

Not much practice starting/stopping, changing gears, turning, etc on the freeway.
