I grew up twisting wrenches in a dirty old shop because thats what my father did. We worked on anything that had wheels and I hated every minute of it but it did pay the bills. I finally (at 40) decided to go back to school and now hold the title of a "Biomedical Engineer". It sounds great but I'm still just a glorified mechanic, I work on medical equipment for a large health system here in Georgia.
If it plugs in and is used on or for the care of a patient, it comes through our department. The best part is that everything is clean, no nasty dirty grease, I get to work in pajamas (scrubs) every day and now I have time to ride with friends.

I'm in my 38th year of ministry and have been pastoring a church for over 30 years. That may explain why I need to RIDEEEEE every time I get a chance, lol.

Hats off to you and your profession. Leading a congregation must be extremely trying at times. A friend recently pointed out to me his philosophy when the pressures of life mount. He simply stated he is “ too blessed to be stressed.”. Something I hope to remember and adopt. Meanwhile, life’s a ride so enjoy it to the best of your ability.

Thank you Soupcat. "To blessed to be stressed" was also one of my late father's "sayings." Riding is a great opportunity for me to clear my mind :).

I'm a US Army veteran right out of high school join the military I've done everything from truck driving to armed security to Manufacturing to die casting and now a waste management specialist I'm a recycler on a residential route yeehaw but I do love it customers are great for some reason the kids love the small kids garbage trucks. I have a 1983 Honda GL 1100 brought it several years ago in excellent condition and trying to keep it that way didn't ride much last year had a back procedure done with getting a neurostimulator implant in my back road in a couple times before the snow hit this year around the block just to test my back out stuff felt good can't wait until riding season starts.

I Started out as an elementary school teacher, did that for three years before I decided it wasn’t for me. Got a job keeping the books for a small pest control company for several years before my health declined forcing me to quit. I now work for a big box pet store part time. While I miss the quiet days in the office my body just won’t tolerate 40 hours at work and 15 at dialysis. Riding has literally been a lifesaver for me as it keeps me sane, active and makes day trips much more enjoyable and The Goldwing has kept me riding. The vtx1300 and Yamaha stratoliner were great around town but I always felt ready to get off halfway through longer trips. I tried aftermarket seats, ape hangers, highway pegs etc. on other bikes but for me nothing compares to the wing.
