New "Older" R1200GS Purchased

Just purchased a new used 2007 R1200GS. By new I mean it only has 1,250 miles. Purchased by original owner and slightly used, then was faced with health problems so put in storage. Anyway, I have the bike at the dealership now and trying to figure out what service work I need them to do since the bike has basically sat in storage for the past 3 years. Battery has already been swapped for new and obviously need to change the oil, but should I change out all fluids, anything else? Thanks, I just want to do a good service before I start to rider her hard

Flush out all the brake fluid. Not a big job as your bike is already without the servo. May be a good idea to get the old gas out and replace with fresh.

I'm sure the dealer will be happy to perform the recalls (two brake lines, key ring, etc..). Otherwise you should be go to ride. Have fun
Because you cannot eat a salad with a spork.

They dont know?

Not being a smart ass but the dealer should know exactly what should be looked at.
