I do think it's important to note that many riders getting a fresh tune-up and bike check-over from a 'shop', new tires or services that necessitate removal the tires report tire pressures they have double checked and found quite off the mark; Usually lower from most of my reading.

It's a good habit to be on your game with regular checks and possibly more-so when the bike comes back from other's 'hands-on' service.
I don't think of it as my being untrusting or wary of the shop. Minor mistakes or oversights will usually lead to dramatic events on a motorcycle and I consider it our duty to 'sign-off' on the work as much as we are able to give it a once-over.

Fluid levels, oil filter snug .. lights all working etc... Even if they just remove the seat, some wires or connections can be easily bumped or manipulated accidentally.
