I have experience in all of these areas working professionally for over 15 years.

My first motorcycle was a Suzuki 80 Sport in 1965 and the 2004 KLR is number 39. I have owned, ridden and repaired almost any and all descriptions of motorcycle. Road raced and wrenched road and drag racing machines although not for many years so am a bit of a dinosaur.

I hold a certificate in adult education and taught automotive, small engine, motorcycle and outboard motor repair in community colleges for nine years. I presently operate a tool and equipment supply business in Western Canada.
