I recently bought my Stryker and now I have been out of town for weeks. I have not been able to get enough break-in miles to get the first service before I am due to make a 3,000 mile road trip. I currently have about 225 miles on the bike. When I get back in town I have just two days before I leave. I do not have time to put the remaining 500-miles on the bike before I leave. Any suggestions on what I should do? Can I get the first service done this early and then ride it at 80mph for long periods of time?

My opinion:
Your rings are nearly seated and all the moving components are basically done leaving shavings in your oil. Basically, "the damage is already done."
Change your oil and filter with whatever makes you sleep at night.
Ride on.
Oh, post pics from your ride! Where you going? Need an extra rider??? 8)

Agreed. At least change the oil and filter to get the metal out before your trip.

Ride safe.

Thanks for the info. I have only been riding just over a year and this is my first new bike.

I return to town tonight and then plan to trailer my bike to IL (St. Louis area) in 3-days from now. Once there I immeidately fly out for 10-days of work. When I return to IL I saddle up and will be riding with a group to the Sturgis Rally for my first time via IL/WI/MN. I can only stay in Sturgis a couple of nights cause I need to ride onward to the Jackson Hole area of western Wyoming for work. After that I plan to return to IL via the mountains of CO.

FYI: That is not me on the bike, but I posted these pictures because I am in Glacier Nat'l Park in Montana right now for work and I'm so jealous of those I see on their bikes here. I have been lucky to have traveled the world a lot in my career and I find this place to be one of the most beautiful places I have seen. So, if you get a chance to ride here I highly recommend it. Just make sure it is Summer, the Going-to-the-Sun Road is open and you have your full leathers on-the-ready. It has been sunny and warm most days (70-80's) but it is high altitude and once the sun goes down behind the mountain it gets cold quick and can be very windy. The roads aren't in great condition due to the hard winter conditions, but there are endless fun hills, winding curves and the scenery is unbelievable. You need to add it to your top ten wish list of places to ride.
