1976: Started working for KAYABA KYB in California

I started working for Kayaba Industry Company Western Region Office in 1976 under Mr. Tetsuo Miyamoto. My first work duties were test rider, shop worker and technician. Mr. Miyamoto became my teacher and I absorbed as much information as I could from him. He inspired me to go back to school (Junior college classes) and study engineering classes, but I was not able to complete anything because work interfered with school time. Immediately after starting at KYB, they gave me a set of factory SUZUKI front forks and gas shocks! I was pumped!!
