Sorry to say, but that's not the right bike IMO for a starter bike.

Re: New rider and new to forum

Welcome. You're gonna learn real quick to read the stickies and get some tough skin around here. And I'm not talkin' "toughskins" from Sears.

It takes lots of time to gain the skill and knowledge to operate these kind of bikes. Be prepared for various type of feedback.

Good luck...

Don't worry guys, he's probably ridden his friends sisters cousins husbands nephews dirtbike a few times. I'm sure the lad will outgrow the 750 in no time...
