Taking my bike to Lloyd for the first (of many to come) time has been the best ride-related decision I have ever made. He did a spectacular job, and dealt with every nook and cranny as if he were one of the people who engineered the bike. The valve adjustment required much dexterity and the ability to do some of it by feel rather than by sight. Belt chirping that had been with me since the first rear tire change was finally eradicated. Even Yamaha's practical joke - the radiator hose seal - proved no match for Lloyd, who, with remarkable poise and determination, kept at that thing until it gave up and did what it is supposed to do. The end result is a Star 1300 that rides so much more smoothly and powerfully than it did - even when new. What a treat! Lloyd is a personable, talented, skilled, and ethical man who has earned my gratitude and trust. He earns every penny of his exceedingly fair rate. Recommend without reservation.
