My guy friend taught me stop and goes in the HS parking lot before I took the MSF course. That helped but I was so frightened that I would drop the bike. I had his friends 600f4 out and did just that both low and high sides. But once I completed the MSF course I got on his 1000RR and did not even come close to dropping it. Once, I bought my own bike that same fear crept back. I did drop my bike the day I bought it in the dealer lot. If she has the basics of the quad she'll do fine with throttle and clutch it is just now about balance, which is easier out of first gear as you well know!
