sounds like you're off to a good start! follow your heart. It's better to put forth the effort and fail than to have never even tried!

Houston is the 4th largest city in America technically...

1) NYC
2) LA
3) Chicago
4) Houston

But if you consider the unaccounted for population here that aren't being documented in the cencus, many believe Houston to easily be the 3rd Largest City in America. Also, Houston's population is one of the fastest growing populations, along with Austin and other major cities in Texas.

tmyk

OP, no offense, but if you already have enough skills to do basic maintenance, you are better off learning how to run a business at school than motorcycle repair. Hire a proper mechanic and he can teach you the proper mechanic skills faster and better than any school.
