    Fuck that. If someone expects a free service and doesn't tell this to the dealer before signing on the dotted line, stiff shit to them.
    Polemic....look it up

    I take nothing for granted and negotiated the free first service as part of the deal with my 1290 last year.

    Just had the 30K service done and been pleasantly surprised at the servicing costs so far.

    Nothing except nothing is free in this life, ask any man that's been married for years. For instance, I thought that the servicing from my first wife was 'free'...well that was rather naive of me, she threw the rider and he had to pay for her previous services rendered for another sixteen years, even though other blokes were riding her... and that was after being told by many blokes who new better, and who had run up against these 'servicing charges' before...second time around I approached things differently but life doesn't change, it just finds other ways of doing the same thing differently...if you love your ride just pay the tax and enjoy all the other benefits you will receive...it's a far safer journey, that way...

    WTF is up with this sensible behaviour? This is Kiwi Biker!
    If you are going to be using your brain and doing sensible things then you are in the wrong thread, this is the thread for criticising a dealer for not doing what they didn't say they would do, because reasons!

    All these problems can be fixed. It's amazing how repairable ECUs and the like are. Trouble is, you get an auto sparky with '30 years experience' looking at it, but they stopped learning 20 years ago. Oh, box full of confusing shit is broken, innit, we'll have to replace that, and the dealer wants 4 figures for a new one. Into the bin goes an ECU which could be fixed in an hour for nix.

    In the grown ups world, people that fuck up usually wear it, rather than expecting Mummy/Daddy (sorry, the dealer) to fix it. Sometimes dealers will sort em out anyway, as a bonus. But this is totally at their discretion and if they don't, you're a dickwad for holding it against 'em. Treat it like an unexpected top-up on your coffee at the cafe.

I assumed wrongly it would be free of charge as any other bike or car I have bought brand new it has been. Is this normal? Has anybody else had this experience?

    I have just booked my new Guzzi in for it's first service and I asked them how long it takes and was told 3 hours as they change oil and fluids, check valve clearances etc. I was surprised that it would take so long but there it is.
