I started working on motorcycle suspension in 2001. Over time, I realized the subject was complex enough to warrant a proper education. In 2008, I graduated from CSU with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis in Vehicle Dynamics. I have helped many riders go faster, several to win championships, and one to secure 4 overall number 1 plates from 2 sanctioning bodies. And yes, I turned down a job offer in 2010 to do Data Acquisition and dampers (shocks) for Indy car racing- yeah, Colorado is that nice.
