I won­der, as I’m mak­ing my 31-mile jour­ney back home just for lunch, does ev­ery­one rush to get to 600 miles for their first bike ser­vice? Be­cause that’s what I’ve been do­ing. You have to book ser­vices a good few weeks in ad­vance in or­der to get a slot when you want one. If you don’t, be­fore you know it you’ve hit 701 miles and your bike still hasn’t been ser­viced. So I booked my ser­vice for two weeks af­ter col­lect­ing the Duke, only to re­alise a week later I’d only done 150-odd miles, hence my long lunch breaks. Can’t say I’ve minded, though; time spent rid­ing is time well spent and I’m lov­ing time with the KTM.
