    what do you do as a career?

    i've been lurking for a while now and i visit this site regularly.
    all this talk of people dumping money into their bikes like it ain't a problem.
    im 19 and im having trouble upgrading my dirt bike ever so often because of the money factor.

    so my question is...
    what do all people on BCSB forum do as a career?
    there are a lots of people who own 2+ bikes, how can you afford that?

    I don't have a career, but I work for a courier company.
    Currently I don't even have a bike, I sold it 2 months ago, and the 'new' one is waiting to be paid for..so I'll be bikeless for another month.

    You'll find a wide range of people on BCSB from highly educated proffesionals, to enterpreneurs, craftsmen/women, tradespeople, to spoiled, rich mama's boys.

    Most of us work our asses off to afford to ride the bike, but some like to flash their good fortune I suppose.
    I don't mind it, i just like to ride my bike, ignore the rest

    I just got into truck sales back in August.
    Warning: Do not drink the battery acid. It doesn't taste good and will hurt you. Also do not bite the tires, especially while the bike is moving.

    Our lawyers made us put these warnings in.

    I have a masters in design, and for a couple years before coming here I had my own contract digital studio. I closed it down for this break, and I dont think Ill go back to it when I get home next week. I think Im going to go back to fulltime work. 9-5 has its advantages, like more riding time.

    Currently retired from riding for the reason of personal preservation, that and to live to see my son graduate... Then I might reconsider riding.

    Regardless of what you do this sport will cost you money, just depend son how much you can a lot!

    It's actually pretty sad. Some of the people I meet in my profession have almost no social skills.

    I oversee construction projects and make sure we have the manpower & materials to get jobs done.

    Church doors are always open to whoever wants to enter, but they're only open to those who are willing to be sheep. The service of God is really service to those self-proclaimed holy men who hold the franchise. Accumulating material grandeur is the goal, not the improvement of the people's lives. Independent thought is discouraged. Raising the individual up is not part of the plan; keeping the flock docile, distracted, and deluded is what it's all about.

    It is a pretty exciting career. I mostly work during the daytime with some evening work as well. My schedule is pretty flexible so it works well with my riding. The $$$ is pretty good too.
