I love my job!

The sun finally came out today and I got the chance to clean up some test rides I've been putting off.

~back tracking slightly~
I work at a dealership that sells cars and bikes. Gotta drive or ride each new one before it goes on the lot. Test drive a million cars, no big deal. Our bike mechanic lost his drivers license (for riding 250 km/h on 1 wheel).

Now I get to ride the newly set-up and repaired bikes. I love spring time. 7 dirt bikes, 2 cruisers, 1 full blown dresser and a CBR1000RR, what a rocket!!!

Also put a rear tire on a Boss Hoss, chevy 350 on 2 wheels. There was a test of nerves.

Tough job..

My hubby has always had bikes, including a Harley and an old Indian..I am terrified of bikes..I trust horses

Hey Rat...I don't ride but want to...I'm thinking a good bike to learn on for me(as I'm a tall guy) would be an early 80's Virago or similar. I'm assuming I'll wreck my first bike so I don't want to invesy heavily right off...LOL

L.T. start with something that is comfortable to sit on while you're stopped. Those super fast ones are only comfortable when you're going way faster than you should.

It's not the bikes, it's those other people that scare me!

I saw an old Indian just the other day, an original dirt bike!

Ain't it grand to love what you do?!?!
