Jamie won the "best ever" award for his new employee introduction:
Hello, my name is Jamie & I’m a motoholic…
I would have liked to stand before you all today & say that I have not moto’d in many days, but to be honest, I moto’d yesterday. I am living proof that motoholism is hereditary. My father is a motoholic & my Grandfather on my mothers’ side is a recovering motoholic. I am fairly certain that my motoholism manifested itself in me at a very young age. My father, not realizing that he was continuing the cycle, placed me on the fuel tank of his 1970 Honda CB750 when I was 6 months old. He also placed me
on the fuel tank of his Kawasaki H2 750. I was hooked, but confused on which moto my
addiction craved most.
My confusion further increased when I was given a 1965 Honda CB450 twin by my grandfather & introduced to a Suzuki RM125 during high school. My disease took a turn for the worst around 1997 when I entered the bastion of motoholism in Citrus Heights, A&S BMW Triumph. It was there that I had my first taste of what the British had to offer. When introduced to the Scorched Yellow 955cc fuel injected Triumph T595, my life was forever changed. I knew that it would be a very long time before I could ever become a recovering motoholic, like my grandfather.
Over the next few years I satisfied my motoholic cravings with Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki & Kawasaki. I thought I had settled on Kawasaki, but after going to work for Performance Cycle, the new local Triumph pusher in 2004, my craving for British Iron returned with a vengeance. It was there that I purchased a Graphite 2006 Triumph 675 Daytona. Again, my life was forever changed. After using Daytona to get me through
the most simple to the more adventurous task, from going to Safeway for groceries to camping in Kings Canyon, it seemed that there was no hope for my ever recovering.
The first step to recovery is admitting that there is a problem. Well ladies & gentlemen, I have a problem, I'm a motoholic. It is not always easy dealing with the stigma & bigotry of those who do not suffer from the disease of motoholism, but like many of you, I stay calm & carry on. My addiction has brought back to the bastion of motoholism, A&S Motorcycles. It is my hope that through the guidance & support of this great body of motoholics, I may some day find the strength to walk the path of recovery.
