That would be cool if all intact, funeral escort duty.
I saw four or five at an auction in Seattle a couple of years back and someone just took side cutters to all the cop add on equipment. Yes the bike was a 2004 or 3 that I saw last week. I think they get all the maintenance but are ridden hard. That is what in my mind makes me think I would not pay as much for one as a civilian model. Ten or twelve years old authority model in my mind is no more than 3K for a good deal. And then it is an older bike that will need long term items for maintenance. Good thing is most of these bikes came with out the assisted brakes. They do have two batteries, plenty of back up.
BMW is coming out with so many new models that many riders step up to new units quickly. Leaves plenty of good bikes on the market at lower prices. Dealers want way more than what an individual can sell them for. An RT has at least 200k miles if the normal wear and tear stuff is taken care of. This can seemingly get expensive but your talking about a 20,000$ + bike new. Put a few grand in an older bike and you have miles of pleasure. Don't think it is a cheap diversion. Parts are expensive and doing it well will make things carefree. Hope you find the right bike.
