HD Service

I have a 2007 RG just hit 15000 miles and due for oil change. I am a heavy equipment / fleet mechanic and plus maintain all my own vehicles. Should I take it to my local dealer and let them perform their 15000 mile service on it or will I be fine doing it I have owned many bike but this RG is my pride and joy.
