I think a good way to learn would be on a 4 wheeler that utilizes a clutch and throttle. A Yamaha Banshee has a clutch and throttle with front and rear brakes like a motorcycle. She could get a good idea how all the controls work and get a little muscle memory without the worry of tipping over. This is how I taught my two daughters how to ride a motorcycle.

Take the msf class. It's designed for someone who's never ridden a motorcycle before.

Can someone show me how to ride?

Take the MSF course. You have to anyway to get the license. I did that with zero moto experience. It works great. Then you can start riding around the neighborhood and on some of the main back neighborhood roads. Progressively moving up in speed as you're comfort level increases.
Have fun. Be safe. Wear gear.

After you do the MSF course shoot me a PM. We can go riding to refine your skills and make you a better more adept rider than learning solo. I'm on the NW side of town as well

I took my class there and they showed me the basics of riding. plus you will be able to skip the riding portion of your motorcycle endorsement at the DMV.

they also teach their classes with used bikes so you don't have to take yours. they are an sponsor here so I highly recommend that you contact them.

Don't ride on the road untill you have taken your msf course please, 1 if you have trouble turning while you're stopped you are going to have trouble turning at 50+mph when someone cuts out in front of you, and 2 its illegal, if your anywhere around my age (23) insurance rapes you so you don't want any traffic violations.

Be careful, I say a road is a road.. if your subdivision is anything like mine.. (groundskeepers speeding while towing lawn equipment trailers, kids zooming down the road on 4-wheelers and golf carts) it can be dangerous, just be really careful if you haven't fully learned how to operate your bike. Glad you are signed up for the next class!

find someone with a Honda 50 if you want to learn how to take corners. the 50's a re near bullet proof and you can learn a LOT of fundamentals on them. you could use mine but you'd need to drive to league city
