So I just passed 13,000 miles on my bike, and I know it's been a few thousand since I last took her in for service. Can anyone tell me which one I've missed, what should be checked for it, and what the following service mark is at?

Thanks! (oh, and I lost my manual, otherwise I'd check that)

You are probably due for an oil change and general check over-tire pressure, bolt check, etc. At 15,000 miles, or around that mark, you should check your valve clearances. Mine were slightly tight on three of my exhaust valves.

Personally I check bolts front to rear, top to bottom once per month. I usually find one or more exhaust bolts loose (less than 1/4 turn). This is a good habit and allows me to verify wear patterns of my bike. In 26K+ miles, the exhaust bolts seem to be the only 'real' issue. I have stock exhaust, with the holes drilled for sound/performance.
