      Steve Trehern, ex-Rainbow BMW, has been an indy for a while now - he's here http://www.rainbowworkshop.co.uk/
      Prices are shown on his website. Mind you, if you're in any way mechanically minded,an '09 RT is a pretty easy bike to service yourself. Whereabouts in Derbyshire are you?

          Jim Hill at Long Eaton might be better for you then - no website, just Google him!

              Pretty sure he's still at it.

                        Crikey. He's a friend's brother-in-law, I'll have to discreetly enquire as to why he's shut down.
                        Steve will look after you though, and he'll not do things that don't need doing - highly recommended!
