DREAM JOBS: HOW TO MAKE A LIVING DOING WHAT YOU LOVE (12/24/12)


MARK JOHNSON 

FACTORY KTM SUSPENSION TECHNICIAN

STARTING POINT: “I started with Langston Motorsports working for Grant. I was doing a lot of side stuff with suspension and learning a lot of things doing that. I did some stuff with Rookie [Darrin Sorenson], the suspension guy at KTM. I gave him a resume, got the call and it’s been really good.”


THE JOB: “We do a lot of testing with Marvin Musquin, Mike Alessi and Andrew Short. We go to a lot of different tracks and get the bike set up. I do a lot of stuff at the races too?rebuilding and servicing for Supercrosses and outdoors. It’s been a busy season, because we also help the JDR team with P.J. Larson and Tye Simmonds. I enjoy testing the most, because you learn a lot; it’s always progressing and it’s never-ending. There’s always something new going on. The riders are awesome to work with. They are nice guys and good testers.”
