You do not need valve adjustments every 12K (not 6K as you said), only valve CHECKS. If they are out, they will need adjustment, but that happens only once in a while, certainly not at every 12K service interval. The check is not so expensive, only the actual adjustments can run up due to the far more labor involved.
Brake fluid should be changed every 2 years on ANY vehicle, car or motorcycle. Brake fluid adsorbs moisture from the air no matter what vehicle it is on. If your brake fluid is brown looking in any vehicle it should be purged and changed. adsorbed moisture causes corrosion in the master and slave cylinders.
