What this job is about

Motorcycles come with a lot of parts and pieces and let's face it: A rider does not a mechanic make. And when riders can't fix their motorcycles themselves, they take them to a mechanic who specializes in bike repair.From taking apart old machines and adding new parts to diagnosing engine difficulties through sound and the tingling of arm hair, a motorcycle mechanic makes sure motorcycles are roadworthy for their leather-wearing owners. It takes someone who is mechanically minded, with a dedication to quality control and the ability to speak face-to-face with customers, offering advice and making sure that their motorcycles are fit to ride.
