Engineering or technician/mechanic. Please hear me out first. I need advice?

So I am currently in school for Electrical Engineering and in my 3rd year. I have always been unsure of what I really want to do with my life and now more than ever. I have considered being a police officer, chef, and motorcycle mechanic. The one that stands out currently is motorcycle tech. I have loved motorcycles since middle school and they have always peaked my interest. I watch a lot of American Chopper, and I absolutely love Harleys. I have been unsure for a long time about what I want to do. I never even really put a lot of thought into it before I applied to school. My dad and family decided for me in a way. I mean I was on board and it sounded nice but I never really looked at my options. I have been on academic probation 2 times and one more and they kick me out of my school. My past 2 years here I was also unsure of what I wanted to do, but now I am really panicking. My heart and mind are not set on Electrical engineering, I know the pay is great and the job market is out there but I would rather take the hit and do something I love like work on bikes. I don't know how well the pay is, or what the market is, but I do know it will always be something I am interested in. I have been considering dropping out of college to attend UTI (Universal Technical Institute) for the MMI (Motorcycle Mechanics Institute). I do not know much about bikes at the moment but I am good with tools and I know my interest will stay here. I am a very hands on person and love doing labor and working hard. I cant see myself working a desk job as an engineer. Do you think I should go for it and do what I love, or no? also, are there any other tech schools that are out there that may be better for me. I live in buffalo if that matters.

You should try the motorcycle training school. Tell the engineering school that you need to take a semester off for personal reasons. You can decide once you have experience both.
