Default Re: This is priceless episode II

I start to get skeerd when the "mechanic" instantly feels the need to inform me that they are "ASE certified" as if that's the holy grail of mechanicdom. There's no replacement for displacement and no substitute for experience and wisdom.

As for the owner, he knew enough to know that he needed someone else to handle the install. Can't blame him for that. His choice might not have been the best but...

Scary thing is, I LIVE about in the area where the bike was supposedly built, nearby to the epicenter of stupidity! I'd bet the Ignoramus Gieger Counter would be ticking frantically if you turned it on! And NO, I didn't do it!
