I've been in the business a long time. I've worked in dealerships in sales, finance, parts, sales management, and as a GM. I've been in various positions with distributors and manufacturers.
I've also been a life-long racer, hobbyist, race promoter, collector, and ADVer.
I will tell you that there are times when I literally hate motorcycles. It's not all the time. But it happens more than you think. I have 7 bikes in my shop and there are days I can't stand to look at them.
Mixing your hobby with your livelihood is a love/hate thing. And it's not for everyone.
