Since you don't even have to remove tupperware to do it, I would suggest learning to do the brake flush yourself. You can do both the brake and clutch without much hassle. I would suggest a Mighty Vac for the clutch, but it isn't a requirement. Just be careful not to suck the resevoir dry. Same deal with the brakes, but the ABS pumps do almost all the work for you.
You'll save lots of coin and won't have the hassle of dropping the bike off. Of course since it only needs to be done every other year, you basically have to learn it each time. There are some good instructions in the Hall of Wisdom. Throw in an oil, transmission, and rear end fluid change; then you are pretty much done.
The valves probably don't need to be checked. It is a little more in depth and requires more mechanical inclination than the rest of the stuff. It can be done with some patience though.
