Ted Porter - Suspension training certificates from five major shock manufacturers and a 40-year industry expert.

Decades ago when Ted was just a boy, his dad who was a respected auto mechanic pointed out the poor suspension behavior of a car with a blown shock that was driving next to them. That began Ted's fascination with suspension. Ted went on to become a certified BMW motorcycle technician, a BMW dealership service manager, then a motorcycle business owner with a focus on suspension. It wasn't long before the business became a nationally known importer and distributor of suspension products for all brands, plus distribution of other unique items such as the Hexcode products and Motohansa tools. Ted still gets his hands dirty doing most of the ESA conversions, and enjoys doing classic BMW component repair when time allows.
