I think they require 12k services that include valve adjustments and a hook up to their computer,something you cant do at home. My brother owns a 2009 R1200RT and I just got back from picking it up for him after his service. Great bike but it does require a bit more maintenance than my 2009 HD Ultra (no valve adjustments on HD). Not sure exactly what they do with the proprietary computer hook up but every time he talks to them they insist that is part of the service and a "must do". The RT was changed in 2010; slight re-design but overall any year is fine - I've never heard any complaints about them.
