Think back to that last time in your life when you felt utterly powerless. When you were stuck. When you made a mistake, and without the help of a stranger, you were literally left out in the cold.
This was my situation last week, and thanks to the knowhow, professionalism and honest care for a fellow man, AJ and team saved my ass. Making my final pit stop on a weeklong motorcycle trip up and down the California coast, I decided to spend the idyllic mid-September afternoon at the beach in Carmel. Only when I changed out of my swim suit and back into my leathers did I realize that my usual right-front pocket may not have been the best choice for a single ignition key. The beach swallowed another valuable item that afternoon; this was literally a case of attempting to find a needle in a haystack.
Long story short, I was able to arrange for a lift for myself and my bike and make it to American Lock & Key a few minutes before closing. AJ immediately dug in and started pulling apart the fork-mounted ignition assembly. The challenge of cutting a new key for my '03 Bonneville clearly was an exciting one for AJ (a motorcycle enthusiast himself), and despite it being the end of his long work day, tackled the project without much more than a "let me see what I can do."
Less than an hour later I was handed two brand new keys, and more importantly, a way for me to continue my journey.
I can't say enough about these guys and the services they provided that afternoon. AJ literally went above and beyond, staying way past closing time and in doing so, saved me a night in a hotel and likely a missed flight out the next morning. If there was a way to give these guys 6 out of 5 stars, I wouldn't hesitate.
