Maintenance interval

Here's the scenario:

You have 21,000 miles on your Brick. A vacation you had planned is coming up that will entail probably a little over 3,000 miles from start to end destination and back, which means you'd be somewhere on the road when 24K rolls around.

I'd ride it and do the maintenance when I got back, even if you missed it by a couple of thousand, I wouldn't really worry about it.

Do it when you get back. You never know the problems that will surface during or after performing maintenance, especailly if a dealer does it.....Go ride
