I wish I enjoyed my work. But it pays well, so I can afford motorcycles.

My hobby is trying to make time for hobbies at all. Wait, aren't hobbies supposed to be fun?

Also, I had a some serious health issues (big time cancer scare and pre diabetic) last year that has me spending time working out. It is a hobby just trying to eat right and excercise.
Bandit; I'm a Chiropractor. Business idea #1; you drive me around the country and we ride and fix these old broken GasGas riders!!

I get paid to use explosives.
It is work but on a good day it doesn't feel like work.
Have played with trials bikes for the past 35 years...that is my favorite form of 2 wheel travel.
From my work trade you don't need to guess very long where my user name came from.
Was doing a job at a local college and the day care center was beside where we were working, had a bunch of the kids come out and sing a song for me...it was "Boom Boom the blaster man"....that stuck with me so I used it.

My Chiro is the only person that can give me relief when it starts acting up.

A real Golfer amongst us Bandit - nice I played Professionally for 15+ years up until 2008, and then as an Amateur afterwards in some big events, playing off a UK handicap of +2 for 3 years or so. Then i kinda got out of the groove / habit of playing for a while and havn't touched a club for nearly 3 years. Havn't got the itch either as yet.

Back problems of any sort and golf dont mix im afraid as you well know. If your really enjoying them.....stick to the bikes. And the kids of course !


Amongst other things i also collect one type of golf 'memorabilia' in a pretty big way, but im not sure anyone on this type of forum would be that interested in pics of that.
Awesome. You ever play in The Open? Where at? There was a time that I would have sacrificed body parts to be a pro golfer. I tried like hell, but it wasn't to be. Am Tour has been really fun. I don't miss the agony of playing the game at all, but I miss my friends. I miss hitting my Mizuno MP67's.

What sucks is that I could be playing everyday right now, but I can't bc of my lower back issues.

I like to think of trials motorcycles as a completely different hobby
