Phoenix and Orlando. That's about it for tech schools. Won't get rich in this field

Found a Great Article on Motorcycle Mechanics or starting your own shop @
http://www.dansmc.com/yourshop.htm . I guess I'll leave it as a hobby.

What a sad article. I had a similar experience. I loved cars and always worked on my own. Went to school and got certified and started working on them for more money. Lost interest in working on cars in my own time. Now I am still a technician but for a lot more money in the oil and gas field. Work on my own bikes in spare time.

If you want to make some cash, flip some bikes. That way its still a hobby and you can make some coin.

AND you can write off tool purchases, etc. on your taxes as a business expense. I believe you're allowed to report a loss on a business for up to 3 years (definitely need to look this up again)...
