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 馃槒

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.
