It doesn't matter what you do, it's the routine that kills ya.

Few years time and you'll be hating life everytime you jump on a bike as you'll be doing the same test over and over again.

My two cents.

Like the phrase 'and to clean the bike to showroom condition ' hour and a half ride then 3 hours washing and polishing the bloody yoke.

That's pro rata, ie 27K divided by 5 (because you only work 1 day in 5).

Read it as 27k a year for one days work a week. Would have been nice.

And since when did a PDI involve a minimum of 100 miles testing?
Unless things have changes since I was at it, a PDI didn't need more than a quick spin up the road and back, a few miles at most.

Sounds like utter bullshit to me. Clickbait shite to get you onto their shite website.
