I've owned this bike for only three months and already have to purchase after-market shocks 'cause the right-rear shock is history! While the bike was in the Honda shop, they checked outmy front brakes (heard churping noises) but said they were fine. Now the front brake handle doesn't have much play and the brakes can barely stop the bike. Do you think they somehow left air in my brake line or something? If so, how do I bleed that air out... if indeed it is air hendering my braking?

When you say the brake lever doesn't have much play, do you mean you have a nice hard lever? If you have and the bike still won't stop, you might have a seized piston, ie not coming out all the way. If the lever has too much play and is soft, then you should try bleeding. On the unlinked systems like yours you will only need to bleed the front callipers one at a time.

If the lever is hard, you could also have a caliper sticking on the bolts, it should float a bit.
