Career Information for Jobs Involving Motorbikes

Motorcycle Mechanics

Motorcycle mechanics are mechanics that are specifically trained to work on motorcycles. They can be trained once employed, although they may also opt to take training through a postsecondary vocational program. Doing the latter might improve their prospects while on the job hunt. They can perform tasks such as filling up vehicle fluids or they may perform tests on the motorcycle to determine if the systems are operating properly. Motorcycle mechanics may replace parts or repair motorcycle systems that aren't operating properly.

Industrial Designers

Industrial designers prepare for their career by earning a bachelor's degree. They create and modify designs of products. Some work to redevelop designs for existing vehicle models, or to develop new vehicle model design plans. Those who work with vehicles may be involved in designing motorcycles, and industrial designers also work on system designs, so they may help determine what features should be included with a model or how to improve safety features or other motorcycle systems.

Sales Managers

Sales managers who work with vehicles oversee the sales staff at dealerships. They may choose to work for a company that specializes in motorcycles, or work for a dealership that sells motorcycles in addition to other vehicles. They need to understand sales statistics and vehicle features in order to prepare their staff to market and sale motorcycles effectively. They usually start out as sales representatives before moving into a management position, and must have a bachelor's degree.

Insurance Sales Agents

Insurance sales agents can enter this field with a high school diploma or with a bachelor's degree. Licensing is also required. Insurance sales agents sell insurance plans to consumers. Those who work to insure vehicles will need to be familiar with motorcycle policies, motorcycle safety features and models in order to determine the appropriate insurance for their clients. While their work may not involve operating motorcycles, they may need extensive knowledge about motorcycles in order to advise clients appropriately regarding their insurance needs.

Police and Sheriff's Patrol Officers

Police and sheriff's patrol officers are law enforcement professionals who have completed police academy training and passed required fitness tests. Some may also be required to have a degree. Police and sheriff's patrol officers monitor motor vehicle operations by drivers, and may pull over motorists who are speeding or appear to be driving an unsafe vehicle and issue citations or tickets. Some police officers operate motorcycles as a regular part of their duties, while those who are performing traffic duties may need to be familiar with motorcycle safety standards in order to identify unsafe motorcycles; they may also pull over motorcyclists that are not operating their vehicles properly.

Transportation Vehicle, Equipment and Systems Inspectors

Transportation vehicle, equipment and systems inspectors do not necessarily need postsecondary training to enter their field. They perform vehicle inspections. This may mean inspecting a new motorcycle to ensure that it meets safety and operational guidelines, or it may mean reviewing repairs that were performed to ensure the work was done correctly. While these inspectors may work with a range of vehicle types, their work also involves knowing the regulations and standards for motorcycles.
