Ten Kate Motoren
Whilst studying, I had one of the best part-time jobs anyone can wish for that loves bikes: I was working in sales at a motorcycle accessory department. I love motorcycles and love motorcycle equipment.


Dutch motorcycle store Ten Kate Motoren is the address for everything motorcycle. The company breathes motorcycle and the passion for it with selling motorcycles, parts, riding gear and running a very successful racing team. It is a name with a long history that attracts customers from all over the Netherlands and abroad.


As a kid my dad was riding a motorcycle so we used to come fairly often to this motorcycle store. The clothing department was my favourite place, with all the suits and helmets. Funnily enough, when I was coming there as a kid, two people were already there working and starting up the clothing department. After a quick work placement back in 2011, I had the pleasure to stay working on the Saturdays.
It was great working with the people I felt I was growing up with all those years ago. I learned a lot, and being in sales gave me confidence to speak in public and to sell. Quickly gaining all the knowledge to sell the products with facts and a good story. I had a blast, and overtime I went from part-time to full-time employee.
In the meantime, I had the opportunity to work for the Moriwaki Cup and with my writing skills being used optimal there. This also brought the opportunity to bring my knowledge of all the products in our online store, combining my writing skills and sales pitch. It was great working here. Combining my passion for the industry, the products and writing was the best of every world and the memories I made here in this time will last a lifetime.

In short, during my time at this great motorsports class, I was:

  • Creating online product texts for motorcycle clothing;
  • Selling customers motorcycle gear and accessories.
