Since most of the stuff is top secret. I am assuming they pay you to ride the bike around in a circle track. I don't know riding 1500 miles a week around the same circle would suck the big one.

never know, road-rash.

they could have a road track as well, or some of the work could be testing different performance components on production bikes.

sounds like it could be a decently cool job.

pushing a prototype sportbike up over 150 around a track when it's 115 degrees in arizona in july would suck though.

This part of the job makes it sound not so good.....

"This position requires the physical ability to lift motorcycles up to 900-lb from a fallen or parked position ....."


If part of your job desription is picking up dropped bikes... the other part is dropping bikes...a lot

yep i thought is was couldn't remember here is info from an article in october 2009:

Quote:
At the southern end of the country, Harley-Davidson announced it would close its test facility at the Talladega Airport in Naples Florida, eliminating about 100 jobs there. The testing facilities in Florida as well as those in Mesa Arizona will be consolidated to its to the Arizona Proving Grounds in Yucca, Arizona.

Harley-Davidson bought the 531-acre test track, formerly a Ford Motor Co. testing facility, for $6.5 million in 2002, according to Florida county land records. The facility performs several kinds of vehicle testing, including emissions, brake, sound, durability and automated vehicle tests.

"no serious criminal history" eliminates another half.
300 miles per day? 1500 a week. That is a lot.
5 hours in AZ heat wearing leather?
