Welcome to the Forum Janis!

You’re going to love the SS, and will find a lot passionate and knowledgeable riders here to help if any questions.

As the saying goes, “without pictures, it didn’t happen.” 😉

Took my SS on a first 2 day ride to the mountains. Put ~450 miles on it in 2 days. It's at 535 miles now and about to go in for 600 mile service:

Make sure the service indicator is on, it comes on at the equivalent to 1000 km not 600 (622) miles or you'll end up going back to get it turned off......

Very nice scenery!! That 600 miles went quick! As Steve said, wait until the light is on, otherwise a return trip will be in order. Oh, and be prepared for a costly visit. Somewhere between $320-$480 US for first service. Sucks, but it is what it is...

Wow that is expensive I paid £178 for my first service which I think equates to about $235 they even altered the gear change lever and back brake within that price. They even ordered and fitted two rubbers missing from the mirrors that hadn't been fitted by the original dealer

Yeah, us Americans are getting robbed. We have a lengthy thread about this discussion found here. Oh well, gotta pay to play, I suppose. :|
