I am the same way, my bike has 10,000 miles on it now and I have only brought it to the dealer for the first service. Probably a good idea to keep the warranty.There's a lot of folks who'll scoff at you for this... but I vote dealer for the 1st service. I do ALL my own stuff on the bike. But for the very 1st service, I took it in. I figure (like Spierings said) it helps support the warranty, and gives them a chance to check for critical issues the first go round. After that, do your own. Just my .02 cents!
