Three of them. And my wife works two (not too, but two also).



Insane? Me? Yup.

two jobs, and alot of overtime. ive spent every dime made in the second gig on motorcycles, or guns.... but i sold alot of the guns to buy more motorcycle. but then again, i really dont have alot of bikes... so maybe just "some overtime".

i plan to retire from spare job at the end of next year, after i use it to pay off my truck, so i can have more time to ride said motorcycles.

And remember dear reader that if you start a home based business in the motorcyle world and it happens to lose money, you have to write that off your taxes as a business loss. Its the way of the entrepeneur.

Yes, you keep whatever it was that caused the loss, but your taxes will be less.


I am not an accountant and will not represent you if you get audited, but I have figured this shit out just fine.

Epiphany! under the banner of my firearms safety training business, if i teach a class on how to safely cary a gun while riding an enduro, and how to engage threats while riding..... i could write off my bikes!












.... maybe not.

You'd better be writing off your guns and ammo. And if you ride the bike to the range, then you should be writing off your mileage and maintenance. Yes, you should keep a log of the miles, but that will only come into play if you get audited.

Get a real accountant and see what he or she says.

I know mine isn't extravegent or going to be, but It'll be nice. It's just a matter of working for what you want and willing to do what needs to be done. :)

Agreed 100%. +10

Wish more people had your ethic.......instead of standing around with a hand extended towards the "government" - i.e. you and me. Good on 'ya !

mine isn't either (extravegent), but it also represents 40 years of not throwing things away . . . . . .

One man's extravagance is another's humble abode........please provide your definition of extravagant garages or numbers / types of motos.

Oh, and yes, we are insane and that is why they call us "inmates".

Well, after much consideration, I've decided to suck it up. I'm going down to the lumber yard and having the engineer there sketch up some blueprints for me based on the subfloor and what I want to see. After talking to wifey she was ok w/ spending the extra dough to get it drawn out by a professional. They'll even deliver all needed materials to my house for me. So, I'm going in saturday to get the plans drawn out. Wooooo! I"m stoked.

I promise to take updated photos this weekend to envigorate my favorite thread.

BTW, I did try to order gravel last week and the trucker said it was too wet. This is after 1" of rain in two days. Welcome to California.
