Deb and John were amazing instructors! I took the course Nov 1 and 2nd. I have ridden a bit before but walked away with much needed knowledge and alot more confidence after two days with both of these people. Thank you for caring about and enjoying what you do and your time spent educating those of us with fewer skills. God Bless you both!!!

I completed the 9/20/14 to 9/21/14 class with Kevin & Yvette. I could not have asked for a better experience. Both coaches were patient and took the time to ensure each class member understood and felt comfortable going through each lesson. They enforced the most important parts of the course which were safety and the fundamentals of riding. I encourage anyone who hasn't taken this course (experienced or not) to do so.

Deb Saunders is the perfect instructor for the Basic Riders Course. I went in with no knowledge and had never ridden a motorcycle before. What I left with was knowledge and experience. She is patient and ensures that everyone is on the same sheet of music.

Just completed the class Aug 9-10th, 2014. Deb was the perfect instructor. She explained everything and made the class very interesting. I had never ridden a bike. Now I have knowledge to help me with my riding. Passed with flying colors! Highly recommend this class

Joe Michael and Brandon were the instructors for my course on July 26 and 27. They were excellent coaches! I had never sat on a bike before those days, but they made learning so easy! They both were patient, skillful, and knowledgeable. My experience was great and I highly recommend this course to new and experienced riders. They taught me everything I need to know to start riding safety.

I want to thank John and Jennifer for putting on a great class. I hadn't been on a motorcycle for over 30 years and by the end of the two-day class I was ready to get on the road. The class was well taught. We had riders with varying skills from a veteran rider with many years to a complete novice. By the end of the class you couldn't tell the difference.

The skills I learned have proven invaluable out on the road. I highly recommend this class to anyone on, or planning to be on a motorcycle.

Thanks John and Jennifer. Well done.

Just finished the basic course in Cookeville 6/29. Big shout out to 2 great coaches Hope and Ethan! They made everyone feel comfortable and at ease. They were extremely knowledgeable and took the time and care necessary for each individual student. I highly recommend taking this class with them. Thanks guys, I had a blast and made some new friends!! SQUIRREL!!

I took the class last weekend (21 June - 22 June). My instructors were T.J and Debbie. I had no experience with motorcycle before I took this class. I was a little nervous at first but T.J And Debbie were very good at breaking down information and were able to meet each individual at their experience level. This class is defiantly work taking. Thanks to both instructors.

I took the Basic Course to get my Motorcycle Endorsement in Clarksville during the class on 6/21-6/22. I went out expecting for it to be just a basic riders course that only covers the basics of riding. That was not the case. There was a lot of riding that taught accident avoidance manuveurs and getting the correct mindset to be prepared for anything that might be able to happen while you are riding. TJ and Deb were a blast and catered their training to each individual person to help everyone be able to adjust and get better. Thank you both for a great weekend and I highly recommend this course for every rider, regardless of skill level. There is something everyone can learn from this course.

Took the 16-17th June in Clarksville with Deb and Brian. Great instructors,always encouraging and friendly. I live in Nashville and the commute was not bad. Great fun. Hot weather. Super tired. Got my license endorsed for DM on the 18th June :-)

My wife Dawn and I took the class on 10-11 May. Deb and Julius were expert (patient) instructors. I have always wanted to learn to ride and was properly introduced to the basic fundamentals by D & J. They met each student at their experience level and took them from that point. Everyone was made to feel comfortable the entire time. When we had bike malfunctions they corrected them in a timely manner so that the student didn't miss the fundamental being taught. They have the skills to successfully teach the course. My hat is tipped to their ability as riders and instructors. Thank you for a job well done!

I passed the BRC class last weekend May 17 & 18, 2014 in Murfreesboro. The class was great including the instructors Gardiner and Branden. Both riding coaches were encouraging, patient, and fair. The riding courses were more challenging than I expected. I learned a lot about safety and I'll be a better rider for taking the class. Thank you Sloans's Motorcycle's, Gardiner, Branden, and all the sponsors of the program.

I had been debating buying a motorcycle for several years. I had limited experience with dirt bikes. I hadn't ridden a two wheeled vehicle in over 14 years. I was nervous about taking the class at first but I would highly recommend it now. TJ and John instructed us in Cookeville and both were a pleasure to work with. You can tell that TJ honestly cares about the safety of his students. He can be tough at times but safety is important to him. The environment is very fun and easy to learn in. Again, I would highly recommend this class prior to purchasing a motorcycle. It is a solid investment in your safety and future. Request TJ if you want someone who will make sure you are doing things correctly.

I have never been on a motorcycle or had any experience shifting a manual transmission, but completing this course gave me the skills and confidence I needed. T.J. and Doreen were the instructors at this Cookeville MSF course. They made the weekend a stress free, safe experience for everyone and instilled us all with the knowledge and self confidence to ride. I highly recommend this course to any potential rider.

TJ and Micheal's class in Nashville was of greater quality than I thought possible. TJ is a great man with a charismatic demeaner and Micheal brought everyone together as a unit. The class went beyond motorcycle riding. Our class was appreciative of the life skills lessons these guys taught as they mentored us toward having the upmost confidince in ourselves.

I took the course the weekend of April 5-6, 2014 in Clarksville. I live in Nashville but the drive wasn't bad. I've wanted to learn to ride for a long time and didn't believe that I could learn how to in two days. By the end of the first four hours, everyone in the class was riding! Deb and Kevin were my instructors. They were knowledgeable, patient, and friendly, had positive attitudes and were as excited to be teaching as most of the students in the class were to be learning. They made certain that safety was a priority. They also took the time to answer questions, even subject matter that wasn't part of the course, and to thoroughly explain all techniques. The students in the class ranged from beginners with little to no experience, to experienced riders wanting to know more about proper technique. By the end of the 18 hours we spent together, everyone in the class felt confident. We all passed our tests and are prepared to hit the road! I highly recommend the course to anyone, it is money well spent and will give you the opportunity to meet new and experienced riders.

Took the Nashville class with Joe and Will. They were excellent instructors. Both were always encouraging and friendly, never discouraging at all. They made the various drills and exercises fun and enjoyable, while still making sure the students understand the practical reasons behind them. They also provided a great deal of insight from their own riding experiences in regards to safety in traffic, riding in groups, etc. I would highly recommend taking this course for anyone looking to get a motorcycle/scooter/etc. And Joe Michael and Will are both excellent instructors!

This was my first time riding and this course was the best decision I have made about motorcyles. The instructors: Jeff and Rick were excellent. They were very knowledgable, nice and informative. We had riders from all sorts of backgrounds, ages, etc and everyone felt comfortable. The class was very informative on practical skills along with strategies on how to be the safest rider you can be. Jeff and Rick gave us real world advice from their own personal experiences that were very beneficial. Great, great, great course and even better instructors. thanks guys.

I completed the beginner's course today. I have had nothing less than a wonderful experience from the time I placed a phone call to inquire about the class. I started with Dee who rendered nothing but excellence customer service. From there, I was even more fortunate! I have never driven a motorcycle until yesterday. Prior to, I have only been a passenger. Entering the class I was a little nervous yet excited. I believe I had the best instructors who met every one of my needs. My instructors were Candy and Larry. They were very informative about everything from riding gear, handling the motorcycles (safety, common riding situations including, but not limited to emergencies), controls, etc. I appreciated the patience they exercised as they explained and demonstrated the different activities throughout the class before having us do them. They didn't hesitate to take the necessary time to help anyone in need. In addition, I enjoyed the balance in my class because Candy and Larry made it a FUN learning environment. Because of them educating me by showing me and letting me walk through all the necessary steps to build my skill level; I now know how to safety drive a motorcycle. I will be recommending anyone who expresses an interest in learning to ride for this course. It was well worth the time and money! Thanks so much Dee, Candy and Larry for making my learning experience fun and memorable.

I took the class in Clarksville with Deb and Julius. They were AMAZING!The most patient, knowledgeable, and helpful instructors imaginable. I feel they were a blessing (picked just for me by my husband watching over me from above). Deb & Julius- you are wonderful people & great instructors! Thanks. I will definitely be signing up for more classes with you two.

i did this course (brc) to get my endorsement on my DL. i got SO much more than i thought before. i am 50 yrs old and have had many motorcycles and been riding since i was 12 yrs old. i had a BLAST. i watched first time riders learn to ride, i learned something new in every exercize, or got better at what i did know. we had a diverse group of 11, men, women,old,young, experienced and brand new.. some how i feel connected to them all... i may not see them again but i will remember them, we took pics at graduation. this was one of my most funnest weekends ever (not kidding) and i got legit. this was so much fun, one could do it for fun, and not be sorry. i hope Candance (my c-1) is there when i take the next course.. be safe.. oh and my friends call me HoopDeville.
2014-03-10, 18:42
I took the basic course with Deb & John. These two know what they are doing. I learned so much from both and I am very thankful that I got such awesome rider coaches. Both of them boosted your confidence. I never heard a negative word come from either one of my coaches and that helps boost your mindset too. If you have a choice, pick Deb S. & John D., you won't regret it. Thank you both for all that you guys did for us!

Just completed the BRC course yesterday. Hadn't ridden in years (I'm 65) but I learned/relearned a lot. The most fun, even when I made mistakes, that I have had since moving to Tennessee 2 years ago! And, the James Family Team made it all possible.

I took the BRC in Nashville with TJ. The instruction was professional and fun. I walked away excited to ride ans very glad I took the course. Thanks TJ!

I took course in January. I was petrified to ride and wanted to conquer my fear. We had a small class of 6. It was the best time. Karl was a great instructor and so motivated and funny. We were motivated to learn and Karl let us ride. It was freezing but I layered up and had an amazing time. I am now addicted to riding and try to find every excuse to ride. I would recommend all the ladies to come out and take this course. We girls thinks we can't ride. Well I found the new absolute joy that I have been missing for years. Thank you. This course is amazing and gave me great skills to ride with.Thank you Kelly, and most of all thank you Karl.

Attended BRC Nashville 1 - 12-28-2013 although I live in Clarksville. Joe Michael was the instructor. Due to the size of the class in attendance, we only needed one instructor. Joe is passionate about instructing. His demeanour was consistent. You can see the level of knowledge in his breakdown of scenarios and concern for our safety during the hands-on portion of this training. He identified the task, condition, and standard by which you were to perform each maneuver. He constantly regurgitated former lessons learned in order to build our confidence with the instructions. Leading questions were used often which provided a learning environment for all instructed. Joe is a very good instructor! Joe was patient with all students. He was a mentor, a coach, a teacher, an instructor and a big brother to all those that were willing and able to be sponges. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to enjoy life on a motorcycle. This MSF course was very instructional and enjoying.

Wow, what a day! I met up with TJ for one on one training for my trike. I was very nervous at first but as soon as I started practicing the drills with TJ, everything fell into place. I learned a lot, but I also had fun. TJ is a great instructor. If you want someone to teach you how to ride (ANY BIKE) ask for TJ.
I also need to say HOW AWESOME Dee was in getting me set up for this appt. The folks at Mid TN Motorcycle are the BEST. Ride on....

RiderCoach T.J. was awesome. Personality, passion, professionalism, and patience; T.J. has it all! I highly recommend taking T.J.s class, and learn to ride the right way! Invaluable experience!

We took the class the weekend of November 16-17. Joe Michael was our instructor and he is VERY GOOD. He knows what he is dong and imparts that knowledge to you during the skill prep and actual skill practices. He is calm, cool and on your side. He wants you to succeed; however, he clearly lets you know it is your responsibility to take what he has taught and apply it. Fantastic instructor! We took our skills test in the pouring rain ... and we passed! During the classroom portion, we partnered with the Ladies only BRC and their instructor Candy Canderday. Candy is very down-to-earth and easy-going. I don't think you could go wrong with either instructor to be honest! For what it's worth, we went straight to the DMV the next day and got our motorcycle endorsements. Believe me, the price is worth the $$ spent! Thank you, Joe, for your patience, knowledge and skills! Thank you Candy for your help as well! Let's go ride!!!

I want to thank Karl for excellent training, and for patience. I am a beginner and had never sat in the front on a motorcycle before. I'm 60 years old and was very nervous. Karl went over everything slowly made sure I understood. He gave me confidence I wasn't sure I had, so thank you so very much.

I have been wanting to learn how to ride a bike. Went to the all women's corse in Nashville. The 14th of Sept. I was nervous at first. Had a Great instructor, TJ Tennet. He assured me that there was nothing to stress about. I had fun. I learned how to ride my bike. Met great friends. It's an experience that I will never forget. Just want to thank God, and my coach for the confidence that was instilled in me.

Took the BRC with my daughter-in-law this weekend in Clarksville. Had the privilege of having Joe Michael as our instructor. He took the time to explain and demonstrate all aspects of each exercise. His class was safe and as stress free as a person can possibly make it:). I will not say this was easy, for some it probably was, for me, not so much. Joe never gave up on me and took the extra time to make sure I understood what I was doing. The man truly has the patience of Job. I would recommend this course to anyone, even if you have experience. It was money VERY well spent. Both my daughter-in-law passed, so if a 56 year old gal can do this, so can you! Thank you Joe!!!!
2013-09-01, 13:02
This was the best decision I made in my pursuit to ride. I just finished today and was a fun and educating course. My instructor (Joe Michel) made the class fun while making sure we had the knowledge to quickly gain the skills to be a safe and responsible rider. I know I have a lot of practice to do before I hit the highways but now I have a great foundation of skills to build on.

Last weekend, I had the best learning experience ever. Having TJ and Marissa as instructors couldn't have been any better. They were extremely fun and kind, and also were great at teaching us how to operate the motorcycles. I highly recommend scheduling a class with them.
2013-07-22, 13:14
Nashville's MSF is awesome!! My instructors were Will, Bob, and Joe Michael - each of them very personable and friendly. They won't let you walk through the course either - they want to make sure you understand all of the concepts, and will help you with any questions you might have. The MSF course is a smart $210 spent, and will prepare you for your first motorcycling experience.
2013-07-01, 16:56
I used to ride about 30 years ago. My new wife said no more. Well, after 30 years of marriage, then a divorce, I'm riding again! This course was excellent! I have been back on a bike for about 6 months. A lot of the old technique and knowledge came back quickly. This course, however, taught me what I was missing, and then some! The course taught me things I didn't know, as well as reminding me of things I forgot. I would recommend this course for all riders, especially those that have been off a bike for a while and are starting over.

I just finished the class in Cookville, Tenn. The instructors were great !! If you are looking for a bird class think twice. I saw 4 riding coaches take people that had never ridden a bike before and turn them into riders not accomplished but well on their way. The coaches cared about our safety and making us safe for the people that we will be in contact with on the road. The motivational spirit as well as the spiritual aspect of the class was great. My helmet off to T.J and Hope. You have nerves of steel and a heart of a lion to do the job you do. Thank you for a great experience !!! safe riding to you all my head and eyes are always up! lol

I took the BRC this on June 22 and 23 at the Police Academy located on Leannon Rd.. The class was great, we had the pleasure to have 3 instructors to guide us through the course. It was the most fun and interesting class I have been to. TJ made sure everyone understood how to ride safely and made the class fun. He is very strict and will make sure that you learn as much as you can before he agrees that you are ready to be on the road. The instructors are very friendly and open to answer any questions that you have. I'm very bad at remembering names, but I do have to acknowldge the assitant coach riders, they were very helpful in assiting student during the class. I'm looking forward to take the advace riders course with TJ.
2013-06-22, 19:43
I am really not the type of person that would usually write one of these but I must say for someone who has been riding for 4 years or more you can definitely always improve and I went into this course big headed and very nervous but you will learn things you just didn't know as John said during the course if it was easy there would be no reason to go through the class.It is challenging but also very rewarding. I actually read some of these reviews before I signed up for this course and I must say for the money you save on insurance it pays for the class. So there is really nothing to lose but a lot to gain in experience and confidence. I took the Clarksville class with John and Deb who are by far some of the best teachers out there,of course you are reading these you see they all say that but these instructors are true professionals and great at what they do.
2013-05-22, 05:12
This was my first time touching a bike, but Joe and Larry made me feel very comfortable right away. This was Larry's first class and I wouldn't have known it had he not told us. Joe is a very experienced rider, and he is very patient and knows how to explain what your doing wrong without killing your confidence, in fact when we messed up he built our confidence back up told us what to adjust and the next time around we did it better. I don't believe I could have been put with better riding coaches. This class fit me well, and on day two I actually wrecked my bike early. I was shaken but Joe and Larry got me back on a bike told me what not to do, and before I knew it leaning and pushing through the curves and swerving we're coming naturally. I can't wait to get me a start out bike and go to a parking lot to continue my training and practice. Joe and Larry gave me the knowledge and safety I need to know I can learn to ride and I can do it safely.
2013-05-20, 02:18
GREAT class! 2 years experienced and still learned tons of useful techniques and riding tips. I plan to take the course again in the future just to hone my riding skills. Both Mr. Jeff Anderson and Mr. Joe Michael are awesome teachers that are both very skilled in riding, so they can effectively lead by example. Just a few thoughts to serve as constructive criticism for the teachers: Personally, I preferred Mr. Anderson's calm approach to teaching, while Mr. Michael came off a little too stern for my liking. Depending on the student, one method would be more effective than the other. But in the end I think that both methods get the job done. Thanks again Mr. Anderson and Mr. Michael, y'all are excellent at what you do!
2013-05-19, 13:46
Great Class with Great instructors! Thanks! Hope,Ian,TJ,John and congrats to Hope! Well deserved for a great job!!

Just took the BRC in Clarksville with Karl and Cheryl! Both fantastic instructors who took me from being scared of riding due to a previous fall while learning to someone excited to be getting back on her bike!! Thank you so much!

I had just completed the basic rider courses in Murfreesboro and I had a GREAT TIME learning from instructors Charles and Joe. These instructors were great and taught me everything that anyone would need to know on how to stay safe on the road. I like how they pushed and corrected everything that was wrong and how they helped you to better handle the motorcycle. Because of these two instructors I have them running thru my mind with how to ride. I enjoyed myself a lot and I did have fun learning from my mistakes, I am going to recommend these two instructors to my friends that are trying to get their motorcycle license. It was worth the money that I paid to learn from these two. In the other hand I LOVED the classes. I am going to take it slow with my motorcycle and to always remember that "Wherever your eyes go the bike goes"... I enjoyed the last two days and later when I am more experienced, I am going to return for the Advance classes and I am going to set up for when Charles and Joe are teaching... THEY ARE THE BEST!!! Thank you so much Charles and Joe.

2013-03-17, 17:51
Great class, wonderful caring instructors. I feel significantly more comfortable riding now than at the end of the first day. I learned a lot, and will definitely remember all the important details (always look up!). Thank you TJ, Ian and Hope!
2013-01-06, 16:37
Awesome class!! The instructors were very professional when needed and very fun and enjoyable when needed! Ian and Hope James as well as Gardiner Jones were very helpful I had 0 experience prior to this course and within 2 days my skills were proficient and I had a lot of confidence! I never felt left out or behind due to experience . They taught the class in a way that anybody can learn rather your experienced or not!! Loved this class and my classmates!
