You know, I think that you're right here. I have a Honda shop up the road from me, and went there to get the Moly 60. When I asked where it was, they had no clue what I was even talking about. I went to the rack where I'd seen it before and it wasn't there. They tried to sell me lithium grease and the like, but I knew what I was looking for. Finally, they found a tube of it on the very back of the rack, behind various other tubes of non-moly goo. The packaging had dust on it, for crying out loud!!
