Stephen started his career in the mid to late 90's working at a Honda, Yamaha, and Ducati dealership
in western Washington.
In 1999 worked at a Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha, KTM, Gasgas, Husaberg, Kymco,
and Polaris (Previously Triumph, Norton and Husqvarna) dealership working
alongside one of the top mechanics in the area whom had been working at that shop since 1965. This
shop provided race set-up and support for Kawasaki Team Green racers and factory supported KTM racers.
In 2004 became the parts and service manager of a Honda and Yamaha dealership. At this time Stephen
also worked at an independent race shop and became an apprentice of one of the top race mechanics in
the country learning about suspension set-up, carburetion, and two stroke tuning. He
also worked in service at a BMW, Moto Guzzi, Triumph, Vespa dealer. In 2007 he was also working in an
automotive research and development lab.
In 2009 Stephen started up his first motorcycle shop performing vintage
restorations, race set-up and tuning, and repairs. In 2011 turned the repair shop into a full dealership
selling new (Beta, Gasgas, Ural, and Genuine scooter) and used (mostly European) motorcycles as well as
service. By mid 2014 sales grew much faster than anticipated and he did not have the capital to keep up
and was closed down. After the shop was closed, numerous customers contacted him for services not offered
, and encouraged him to open KMR Cycles in 2015.
