Things to check.
In additon to checking the service records;
Check the throttle cables make sure you do not have excessive slack. There is an "05" upgrade that reduces the twist to full throttle and increases cable life. Excessive twist and cable breakage is common on pre 05 LT's.
Test cruise control, radio, cd, trip computer, all lights, heated grips & seats.
Make sure the trunk latch is not broken and that the gas lid latches. Make sure you get the security system remote, cd player, all manuals, spare key, tool kit, the rubber ball on the end of the center stand, antenna, BMW flashlight that goes in the dash box and ask for all the luggage. Looking at the dealer invoice will help you determine what came with the bike when it was purchased.
If there are no service records you will need at minimum to;
Change all fluids, engine, transmission, final drive, clutch & brake
Inspect & Lubricate the shift linkage
Change the brake pads
Test the battery
Flush and replace the anti freeze
I would also change the plugs while you're at it
