I'm a parts rep. basically people come to me if they want parts or apparel.

well, in something like that situation, I'd be in big trouble, seeing as how I'd be so tempted all the time to buy that cool looking new helmet, or a new set of tires, maybe a new exhaust system, etc for my bike.

Congrats on the new job. Do you think you'll try to work up to a tech/mechanic?

I may apply for a summer job at either Cycle Gear or a motorsports store down in Phoenix. The discount thing is very tempting though, I know what you mean! I had a hard time when I worked at an auto parts store.

I was thinking about going to school for Motorsport repair, but probably not this year. Hopefully I can stay in the red till then.

I thought red was positive and black was negative, just like wiring? hmm, that would explain alot...
