I think you have that backwards. I would never go farther than I could push it back from until after I had done the full service.
Welcome to the forum. Please add your location to your profile and your bike's model and model year (NOT year first registered) to your signature so that you don't have to remember to tell us every time and we don't have to keep asking when you forget.
And welcome to the world of antique vehicle ownership (you will soon learn that it owns you, not the other way around). Your bike has had 37 years of Previous Owners who may or may not have done the maintenance necessary to keep it safe & reliable so it is highly recommended to download the Factory Shop Manual for your model and go through all of the service procedures, regardless of whether your bike has reached the specified mileage. I also recommend looking on all rubber parts with suspicion because rubber does not age gracefully. Check the date codes on your tires and replace them if they are over 5 years old no matter how good they look & feel because old rubber simply cannot flow around the irregularities in the asphalt well enough to grip, especially if it is cool or wet. Regardless of what the inspector said, the original rubber brake lines should be replaced every 2 or 3 fluid changes (= 5 or 6 years) so start shopping for modern stainless braided ones (they last practically forever and double the life of the fluid).
