Re: Fear and Bruising
If you have access to a 4-wheeler with a manual transmission, it would be a great practice tool. I'm currently trying to teach my wife to ride, and we've started on her dad's quad. It's the exact same concept, with slowly releasing the clutch, and applying the throttle. She can practice starting and stopping for hours, without the chance of dropping the bike. Once she's completely comfortable with the starts and stops, then I'll let her on my track bike, to combine those skills with ballancing and turning a bike.
Good Luck, and keep practicing!
