Post when you ride below freezing for god sake, a day above 40 doesn't qualify as hardy. I have to say I have had to adjust valves on most of the bikes I've owned. My oilhead BMW would always have at least 2 valves needing adjustment, they may still have been in spec, but I like my valves at the wide end of the adjustment range. My Strom has needed 2 new shims at 60K and 4 at 15K (I let 2 go that were about mid-way through the range at 90K), my Ducati regularly needs adjustment, and my Concours typically needs the screw and locknut adjusted on a couple of valves every 25K or so. I do all my own valve adjustments, so this isn't a shop blowing smoke and earning some extra money.
