Mark Laske of After Hours Cycle in Orland Park, IL has been an amazing help to me. It’s kind of strange how things work out. You see I was at Boondock‘s with friends and all was fine with my girl (until I went to leave). I had some terrible sounding engine knock that made me really nervous. My buddy took a look around but without a lift and boat load of tools, in 104 degree parking lot, 75 miles from home, we were kind of at a disadvantage.
It was determined that I’d give it a try at getting her home. The crew put me in the middle with the follow bike a safe distance. She made it home just fine and now I had to fetch my mechanic for help. Unfortunately my regular mechanic was absolutely swamped. The next morning I awoke to find a Facebook message in my Inbox from a name I did not know. The man introduced himself and said he was a friend of one of my acquaintances. He saw us the day before having issues and wondered what the problem was. I explained the issue and he agreed to look at my bike the next morning (on his day off).
He is regularly a mechanic at Illinois Harley Davidson but has his own shop as a side business. My son had already bought me plugs and I happened to have a new clutch cable I wanted installed, so I took those things and rode the bike to After Hours Cycle. As soon as drove up he suspected the engine bolt inside the primary. Within 3 hours he called and said my bike was better than ever. It was in fact the engine bolt in the primary, he put in my new plugs, clutch cable and lubed everything up. Considering my economic situation and not knowing this man I was a little nervous to get my bill. But no need to fear, he was very fair and I felt very comfortable with the work.
