Please, please, please don't buy service contracts. $600 is theft, $900 is Grand Theft!

Generally the 600 mi service is for making simple adjustments and doing an oil change. You can have that done if your not comfortable, but after that learn to do the simple stuff like oil changes and chain adjustments yourself. You need to be able to check the oil, adjust the chain, and especially check the tire pressure on a very regular basis.

Riding and owning a cycle is a lot different from driving and owning a car. You need to be able to stay on top of simple maintenance items yourself without running to the dealer. Oil levels, chain adjustment, and tire pressure checks are all critical items for your safety every time out. You don't want to have to rely on an appointment at a dealer to do those items, you need to be able to take control of the maintenance and your safety - it's all your responsibility in the end.

Save the money and buy some tools and a Service Manual. You'll be way ahead in the long run.
