"When You Do The Thing You Love, You're Not Going To Get Paid."
If you're going to do this because you love motorcycles and Harley-Davidson in particular;, then expect to not get paid much and expect to be worked to death from spring to fall and likely be laid off in the winter time. You'll be expected to be at the job all the (allowable) hours and days they're open from spring to fall, and then if you weren't there every opportunity during that time, then they're going to lay you off in the winter.
