It must be a strange feeling to work on a one of a kind factory motorcycle the way the mechanics in the pit area do. Often times they’re handling exotic materials and unthinkably expensive parts, all made to suit and withstand the rigors that a high-level racer can put equipment through. Their work is away from the spotlight, and often requires much longer hours than the racers, but each wrench in the paddock knows it is all worthwhile when success comes on Saturday nights.
