    not sure what you're getting at but to clarify I never said this was in the motorcycle industry. Yes, I know it was probably implied.

    It was just a cheeky joke that no one makes good money in motorcycling. I thought I remembered that you said it was a job in bikes.

    I didn't mind a commute when I was younger, now, I can't imagine commuting, especially on a bike, wrong time of day with too much traffic, I don't care if it's going in the other direction, as soon as you get off highway, everyone is making a left turn in front of you

    If you can flex your hours to put your commute after or before rush, will make the commute more enjoyable and safer

    well i change my opinion...commuting 85 miles one way to work on a bicycle would require lance armstrong blood transfusions 2-3 times a week

    ...but seriously go for it...just make sure it doesn't make you hate what you love

    Update: After a bit of back and forth I have accepted the position. The new gig is giving me a car until my lease is up where I'll have to decide if I will continue commuting or if I will move.

    Cheers to taking risks and not living in regret.
