Aloha,
My son just purchased his first MC. It is a 2003 Honda Shadow ACE 750. He is still learning the ropes about riding etc. Darn kid is going to give me more grey hairs ?

Welcome to the forum. Have him learn his bike and the feel of it's weight, and practice slow speed handling and emergency stops, etc.
Watch practice videos.

I had been riding for years when I took the MSF course and it was invaluable. Here in PA it's free which didn't hurt, but it really teaches a lot of basics on small bikes (250cc in my state), and out on the road I've had to use some emergency maneuvers more than once that I first learned at the MSF and practiced on my own afterwards (thankfully). If he can get into one of those courses it will help him a lot and might even get him an insurance discount. Hope he loves it and stays safe and doesn't give you any gray hair! And like Swifty says, videos are a big help as well and there are a ton of them out there.
