Your plugs should be fine unless the bike has been sitting up. Check you owner’s manual for the scheduled maintenance intervals.

We drive from Baytown and it is well worth the drive. I don't trust anyone to touch the bikes usually, I normally do all of our maint. but I trust Patrick and his crew, they have been awesome.

+1 on the recommended service intervals. You also need to get a service manual for your bike.
