Well for the past 8 months I've been working at a dealership in town. Broward Motorsports of Palm Beach. they used to be palm beach cycles and then got bought out... some of you know I went to school at MMI for Kawasaki (roughly $30k) and have been working at some shops here and there. Well I lost my last job in Jacksonville and moved back home to west palm for this job. I was supposed to be hired at 18 bucks an hour flat rate and well when i got my first pay check it said 16.20 so I asked about it and wow surprise!!!! the company got a 10% pay cut that they didn't even tell me hahaha... what a joke... well I was supposed to get a raise like 60 days in and well when that came along nothing... told my boss something he said yeah ok... another month later I get it... my 18-10% went to 19-10% so now i was making 17.10 and hour.... here's the kicker! I probably worked on about 10 bikes while I was there and I was made the watercraft tech! I never worked on a SeaDoo in my life but I was thrown into the start of watercraft season at its peak and had to fix all these problems..... well long story short things just got crappier and crappier!

Wednesday night I had a small meeting with my neighbor... now I live at my parents house now and they live in a place where everyone has 5 acre parcels... well my neighbor has roughly 2 million alone in landscaping... we became good friends with him and low and behold he owns some of the largest porn web site on the web! along with porn sites he does a ton of other kinda sites. well Thursday I called in sick and I did today to and now I'll be working for this guy 11-6 Monday threw Friday helping him with web sites lol.... and the best part of it is i take my golf cart to work and the pay is AWESOME....

anyways needless to say... I'll have my 12r up and going anytime soon after I order some more parts and I'll be making some great money and building bikes outta the garage my step dad and I are setting up.

Glad to hear you moved on to bigger and better. I actually bought my first bike from Palm Beach Cycles back in 2003. They had a few decent people there but like many dealerships, most were shady. In hindsight, I should have driven down to Delray, couple of great guys down there.

Anything about palm beach cycles is dead...What good rep they did have is dead too because of broward motorsports. A lot of people hate broward just because some of the staff if clueless for real. I knew more about a bike on there floor then one of the sales men haha. But I'm just glad he got away from that place, the money sucks there from what I have heard.

:+1::+2::iamwithst

the biggest pain of it is when i work on bikes i really dont care to much cause I love to work on them, I got stuck working on watercraft which is a WHOLE DIFFERENT BALL GAME I cant tell you guys how bad my back hurts and the amount of cuts I have on my arms from working on these fucking things. I paralyzed almost half my left arm for a few days cause I hit it on the inside of a ski last week. fucking blows!!!!

this new job will be tits though... literally!!!!
