    How are you supporting your habit

    I was just curious as to what kind of cross section of working class folks we had out here and what they were doing when they weren't workin' the dirt.

    I'll start... I'm a Solution Architect for an IT company...A large one... Has two letters in the name... Can't tell you more, or it would give it away. But you can buy computers, cameras, printers, and you may have seen Russell Brand or Manny Pacquiao hocking the products recently.

    SO, what pays for your "fix"?

    I guess my job would be considered blue collar. I'm a network technician for a local cable company. It's the big one, you can probably guess. For the most part I'm the guy that is trying to fix things when we have an area outage. I like to tell people "most people who are smart enough to do my job are also smart enough to not be out at 2:30 in the afternoon in July digging a ditch in order to fix old broken cable". The pay is by the hour, and over time is frequent. 14 years with this company and I'm not complaining, life is good.

    Edit: After reading Britmtnbiker's post I should add, MY wife is a HOT dentist who worships my studly hotness, so I get lots of cool bike stuff.....

    P.S. don't tell my wife I said that stuff above...

    So does that mean you'll get out there in a bikini top and daisy duke shorts for some of those alternative life style riders that frequent this board

    I was a Paramedic in San Diego before I moved here to be a stay at home dad for the last 5 months.
    I sold off my arsenal of 6 bikes I moved here with to afford 2 new ones. (craigslist out here has been a gold mine!)
    I just got a local paramedic job that will afford my next one. (or should I finally get a new car? NO! Haha)

    Media and PR manager for the largest FMX company in the US (you can tell I am proud of that) and we just started a moto news site geared toward the younger set that I am the sole editor of. I do all the announcing for our shows too. So I get to travel alot, work from home more and take care of our two year old while wife works out of the house. I don't get to ride as much as I like, but it keeps me from breaking components so that keeps it cheaper!

    I worked for a couple big companies and a couple small ones after grad school and got fed up with the scene. After getting laid off, I tried to do my own thing. I manage to survive with a little income from various regular job substitutes at one time or another since then. That includes writing software, selling photos, trading stocks, and other stuff.

    Operations Manager for a big company you have probably never heard of, but more than likely has products in your home as a result of those products being embedded in other products you have purchased, borrowed, won, or stole.

    I skip meals, make my kids go barefoot, and pimp out my girlfriend in order to feed my insatiable habit...I also have dogs, a video camera, and the gift of numbness and questionable morals, so if some big new internet sensation originates from this thread, count me in...I need a new frame soon....

    I manage a nature preserve in southern AZ and work with a group of ranchers on the AZ/NM line. Starting to get more involved with local trail work down here so the line between work and play is getting fuzzier every day.

    Well done Dag Nabbit! Even at the molecular level, you would need to start at the surface and work your way in... So you at least get to start out looking at them proper!

    Thank you! Thank you. I've spent some time observing them from the outside during non-funded research hours (I'm one to dedicate myself to my research) but work is purely cellular. I just like to be .... fully informed.

    Network/Systems Admin for a local non-profit. The pay isn't great but lots of days off.

    And I envy the stay at home dads. I did that for 3 years until we moved to AZ and it was great.
    Why would I need more than one gear?

    I'm not a stay at home dad, but I do work from home. Probably the best part of the job, as it allows me to schedule "meetings" at ride time.

    I'm an Industrial Designer pretending to be a Mechanical Engineer at an automotive performance intake company. Lots of seat time on Solidworks and seeing projects through from concept to R&D to manufacturing. There are only two of us developing product so I get my hands on everything.

    I take people on steep rocky loops and when they crash they come to my office and I take x-rays and either refer them to a ortho for a cast or start a rehab program with em. That how I keep funded.

    working ATC is insane,, the only way to move up in the job is to goto a busier location. no wonder those guys are chain smokers,, heavy drinkers, popping amphetamines, and sniffing glue...
