How good do bike mechanics think they are?

  1. A mechanic was removing a cylinder-head from the motor of a Harley
    motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop.
    The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come take
    a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey
    Doc, want to take a look at this?"

    The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic
    was working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his
    hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart,
    take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when Ifinish, it works just like new.

    So how come I make $39,675 a year and you get the really big bucks
    ($1,695,759) when you and I are doing basically the same work?"

    The cardiologist paused, smiled and leaned over, then whispered to
    the mechanic...''Try doing it with the engine running."
  2. What a good point, Alex......
  3. true....

    but the engine can't tell you where it hurts.....
  4. And teh motorcycle mechanic doesn't get lawsuits thrown at it by ignorant imbeciles either! :LOL:
    This story was in a MAD magazine about 30 odd years ago now.
