Personally I didn't bother as I agreed a reduced servicing cost with my dealer as part of the deal, however it will probably work out cheaper for most to take the plan.
The only down side is you have to stick with the dealer you buy it from so if you fall out with them you will still need to give them your bike to service.

Are you sure Mika, the service plan I have can be used at any Honda dealer. With the 3 year warranty and service pack it's worth it, in my opinion. :002:

Can only go by what a dealer told me but I don't have the plan to check the details. If you have the plan and can confirm then please do  :031:

yeah that was me...your new CT looks fantastic. Wasnt sure about white...i wanted silver but after seeing urs I thought id go for it.  Givi luggage looks good. Are you thinking of little spot lights...the givi trekker ones are excellent. With all the power do u feel when uve got a pillion on the back or not?

I will get around to the lights, I haven't ran with a pillion yet but I don't see it being a problem with the torque the motor has.
