Hello all.

I've lurked for a couple of months since around the time I bought my '12 ADV. Though I've posted a couple of times, I figured I should say hello, and THANKS. When I bought the bike, I intended to bring it in for all services. Since reading this forum, I have purchased a service manual and completed the first service myself. Nice to know it was done right. My last bike was an '09 ST1300, great bike and I liked it, but I love my Glee, much more nimble and it just begs to be taken out of the garage. I figure the forum is a wash as far as cost savings. Less on service, more on farkles. Thanks again everyone, especially GreyWolf, you are an asset to everyone here.

Howdy, howdy. I'm new here too. Just got a new 2012 Glee. Love the bike.

My brother has an ST1300. Great bike!

I lurked for a while before posting as well. Where did you pick up the service manual? Did the dealer have it or order it? Because I was told by a dealer that they weren't available in the States (though I don't believe them). I haven't spent much time looking for it yet, but would like to have one eventually.

I bought it from Oneida Suzuki online just under a month ago. $85+shipping, total $99.46. My dealer quoted me $130. Which doesn't surprise me considering they wanted $200+ for the first service.

manual directly from Suzuki..

I ordered the manual directly from Suzuki. The price was similar to Oneida...but it was a direct ship. I think it took three days to get it.

I've got the 2006 wee, and unlike a lot of motorcycles I've ridden, I still get excited at the prospect of riding this bike. It's so easy to ride, it just makes every ride fun.
