12 years, sales, then mechanic, then manager, also included running a 200 bike hire fleet, after that i went to a higher end shop and got a bit more technical, that shop also had a race team so organised stuff for that aswel.


after 12 years i'd had enough of customers, they aren't always right, and i realised i would never beable to afford my own house (on my own) on those wages.

now that it's just a personal interest for me i don't get the times when i'm not interested in bikes anymore which suits me as there were times when i got sick of bikes.
