I am going to have to postpone the uber long bike tour around the US and do a North to South Pacific Coast tour instead starting from Oregon and down to San Diego.

I was not able to raise enough funds in time because the installs I had lined up did not happen.

So, I got a job starting tomorrow I will be working for this company.

http://www.vgigraphics.com/

I'll be learning how to design, print and install vinyl graphics for cars, trucks, banners, signs, full vehicle wraps, etc.

I found the job listing on Craigslist. The funny thing is that I already knew the owner, he used to manage the BMX race team I used to be on in my teenage years. So I emailed him and got the job!

I'm going to work for 6 months, finish building my touring bike, then take two weeks off and fly to Oregon and cruise down the coast :)


I've started accumulating parts for my build :D

Sounds like a good plan. Does the new job pay as much as you want?

No, but it's enough and I get paid more if I bring in sales. I know sales so I should do alright.

I get to learn a new trade though so it's a good opportunity. Plus the work environment is so nice.

No more hectic auto shop, with unhealthy conditions and no more car sales pressure.

Cool. Applying big peices of vinyl can be frustrating, but I guess it just takes practice to get good at it.

Maybe you could get us some cool TN stickers made?

What the heck???

I already told my wife not to plan any chores for me for January and February because I was going to sag for this cross-country bike rider as he made his way across wild and wooly Arizona!! :lol:

Oh well. Good luck on your new job and your ride down the west coast!!!!

Thanks Brian

I'm going to keep my truck and I'll probably stay a Mod, hopefully next year I will be able to do the super long tour.

Looking forward to the Pacific Coast tour though!


Thanks musubi and toysx2
