Went to the dealer and picked up my bike. They are temporarily without a driver to deliver it back to me. Cost me $120 for two tires, 90k maintenance, including oil change, and annual inspection. Their cost (before my pre paid maintenance and tire warranty) $540.

Now I have to figure out why the v-gauge no longer works. I figure they managed to disconnect a wire somewhere.

Oh the joy of post maintenance and troubleshooting after Dealer pre-paid maintenance. I had 12 services done at 5k intervals on mine and only one time it was actually ready to ride when they finished.

Mt stealership is extremely thorough. The problem for me is that they are also extremely expensive. I wish I had a warranty like that one.

Took mine out for a great Poker run. Two full tanks of gas, 240 miles later (thru Bataan, Subic and Pampanga), perfect weather and plenty of Ice Cold Beer at the end of the ride = an awesome day!

They are really sorry they sold me the $1800 Lifetime tire, oil change and and scheduled maintenance contract back in '04. To date it has cost them $10,400.

I pulled the cover off a bit... peeked at it, touched it longingly, then covered it back up. Then got in my car and drove in the snow to work.
