So You Want to Be an Motorcycle Mechanic

It makes sense to work doing something you enjoy. If you like working with your hands, problem solving, and riding motorbikes, then this could be your dream career. Motorcycles are ridden all over America, so this is a very transferable set of skills to have. You could even go anywhere in the world, since motorcycle servicing and faults are the same wherever you go. Younger age groups tend to use motorcycles as an economical mode of transport, as well as sport, and of course thrill seeking. "Forty somethings" are showing a resurgence of interest too. Maybe reliving their youth, or realizing their dream of owning a quality bike. Maybe they could not afford their dream in their younger days, but now they have the disposable income. Of course, all of these contribute to an increase in opportunities for motorcycle mechanics.

Being a motorcycle mechanic does not pay as much as some types of small engines mechanic. It is better paid than most though. As well as work in motorcycle repair shops, you may be attracted to working in a specialist repair shop for a particular brand. These garages are generally keen to ensure that your training is up to date and they will often pay for further training as well as uniforms. The Bureau of Labor Statistics, states that employers are keen to employ motorcycle mechanics with formal qualifications.
