Keith Thye was born in 1942 in San Francisco and has spent most of his working career on the West Coast. In the early 1990’s, after careers in other fields, he and his wife, Ann, found themselves semi-retired. Still looking for something to do, they found the Seattle BMW motorcycle dealership for sale, and Ann purchased it with proceeds from the sale of her earlier business. Keith became the president, and they operated the store for 22 years. In 2003, they purchased the Tacoma, Washington dealership and operated that store as well. Keith and Ann live in Ruston, Washington with their dog, Daisy.
Keith’s work has been published in ON Magazine, Sound Rider, Rider, Lake Oswego Review, The Oregonian , and Motorcycle Powersports News.
