Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance


“The real cycle you’re working on is a cycle called yourself.”
Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values

Alfred Kienleitener is and always will be a motorcycle mechanic.  Now, I know he would give me a grimace and a cynical comment for saying this, but I think he’s a magician.  Or a Zen master.  Or an incarnation of Buddha, which is what I secretly call him. Watching Alfie work on a motorcycle is fun. And interesting. And kind of amazing.  Even when he dons his ancient white helmet and hops on his latest project to test ride his work, the word that comes to mind is “smooth”.  Anyway, if your motorcycle needs a mechanic, bring it into Imperial Motorcycles for a bench session with Alfie.
