I wanted to like these guys. I really did. I wanted to take my motorcycle to a local shop since I moved east, but whatever's going on at Al's, it's not motorcycle maintenance and it's certainly not zen.
Mike, the ""good cop"" mechanic, will tell you whatever you want to hear, while Al plays the ""bad cop"" after they've screwed up your bike, and swears ""you never said"" for them to do the work WRITTEN ON THE WORK ORDER!
""It may say that, but that wasn't our understanding."" -- A direct quote.
My bike sat out in the rain after they failed to reassemble it with ALL the parts... oops. Only after a disputed credit card charge pulled their payment, did they come around and call me 8 weeks later, saying ""Hey, what's up?... Yeah, I know, we got kinda busy with other bikes...""
My original mechanic--who later had to realign my cams and redo my timing-- asked me where the circus was?.. He pointed out only clowns use case glue to button up a bike; it's the lazy-ass way for mechanics without any real skills.
Al's does NOT do it right.
Do your bike and yourself right and avoid these folks. ""Expertise, ""customer service"" and ""honesty"" isn't in their wheelhouse. Hell, it's not in their vocabulary.
