It sounds like shops could have a motive not to k-line if there is less money in it for them. Call me a cynic.

Goff had/has major health issues and I understand he is taking time off...I know Triumph guys who are waiting for over a year to get bike heads done.. They are asking for more than a standard guide and valve job so maybe it takes so long..
I ride junk, some of it actually goes fast
