Sounds great, doesn't it? An army of people supplying you with the best bikes in the world and the best tracks in the world to ride them on. The reality is a bit less glamorous. Sure, it's nice work if you can get it, but there are prices to pay.

Travel, and not vacation travel. Needing to win or at least place well consistently to keep that income rolling. Riding ALL the time. I could go on.

One of my friends from decades past actually hit the big time with a famous group. You all have heard of the group and the gentleman. Ask him about raking in megabucks with thousands of adoring fans at venue after venue. Many are the times when he wished he could be in a "normal" job without all the hassles, pressures and craziness.

The grass is always greener.

I suspect that even if I were rich enough to just do whatever the hell I wanted that I'd get bored with it after a while...Hell, I'm broke and I'm bored with my job now. At least I have a job.

Phuck it...I'm going to ride to work tomorrow and it will probably be one of the highlights of my day.

While there may be many individual exceptions, it has been clear for decades in study after study that higher income and higher socioeconomic status is strongly positively correlated with better self reports of "happiness" as well as objective measures of physical and mental health.

"Money can not buy you happiness, but it does afford a more pleasant form of misery."

Working is for people who...

Can't sit still for long. :raises hand:

Truth be told, as much as work drives me nuts most days, I absolutely hated being unemployed... not for the most obvious reasons, but for the slack time. Not staying busy kills a Type A person. :p

...are responsible and don't leach off society.
Some people dont have the option of working right now. Times are tough. And some people dont understand that unemployment insurance pays you if you lose your job. That is part of the taxes that get deducted from your paychecks. Simply put: you pay for your unemployment insurance while you are working. So if you do lose your job, you have that insurance.
