It's refreshing and creditable that you're concerned about this young man's safety but, as others have implied, you're not his father or mother. Does this young man impress you as being reckless or irresponsible?
He did pass the MSF Basic Rider's Course which means he has some understanding of basic handling techniques. And if he has the proper license required by the state of MA, he is entitled to ride on public roads at his own risk. It doesn't mean he will be entirely safe in a street environment but that shouldn't prevent you from selling to a willing buyer.
It appears that your unstated presumption is that, because he's young, he will likely squirt himself into the weeds or another vehicle and it might be your "fault." But would you refuse to sell jet ski, or snowmobile, or gun or knife to an individual because you were concerned they might injure themselves?
