Don't be afraid to get out there. You really don't say what professionals you want to talk with. If it's a mechanic I'm sure you could go down to the local shop and talk with someone there but first ask the owner or manager. Maybe bring the guy a sub sandwich that would sure work.
If it's the president of Harley D. that might be another story. Usually people in high places like that will make time for some outgoing kid to spend a few minutes with. Just get out there and make it happen. If you need more info give me a little more targeted information. I'm happy to help and I hope this help even if it's a little.
