    On an '06? With that few kms? Since you've done the oil already then just check the air pressure. Nothing of any consequence at all would go bad that quickly or with that few kms.

    For the regular maintainence schedule look in the owner's manual. If it didn't come with one hit up your favourite Honda dealership for a copy or check online for a scanned one or a soft copy direct from Honda.ca.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    u shoudl check if the windsheild wipers on your RR is working on not..

    check ur tires and lube the chain, make sure you have some zip ties, duck tape and a flashlight in your emergency kit.

    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

    check blinker fluid and the amount of coolant you have in your headlight unit.

    Since your anal about your bike I would talk with your mechanic about what needs to be done and what you should watch out for.
    That instead of just posting up for input from strangers.

    Just a thought.
