Brake bleeding an '08 R1200 with ABS?

I have an R1200 RT-P with ABS. My Haynes manual says brake bleeding needs to be done by a dealership and says nothing more on the matter.

Everywhere else I look, I see info on bleeding the control circuits with the bleeders on the ABS unit, and the brakes using a funnel and plug in a fill port, however my ABS unit doesn't have bleeders or ports that I can see. It looks like this: https://i.imgur.com/UA5lCu0.png

What is the procedure to bleed my brakes?

Just bleed it at the wheels, like you would normally. If you have a GS911, there is a test procedure that you can activate, but not totally necessary if you have bled properly.

Paul is right on, the ABS bleed unit stuff is for bikes 2002-2006 that have servo assisted brakes unless you have an old style K GT which they all have the assisted brake servo that needs the for circuit bleed.
