Below is a picture of rear brake fluid with 12k of use. The Wing came in for a 12,000 mile service with about 12k on the ODM. Notice the "crud" in the bottom of the reservoir ... it's really assembly lube and nothing to worry about. If its wiped out, and the brake fluid changed again at 24k, more will probably be found. After that, there should be very little residual left. Note how clear the fluid is.

Below are examples of brake/clutch fluid that is not changed every 12k.

Here is the same from a Wing that has regular fluid changes every 12k. Notice how clear the old fluid is. This fluid has 12k on it, and the Wing has over 155k. This Wing gets regular services according to Honda's maintenance schedule.

Note: according to SB-23, this 5th gen would not need SB-23 completed. It's been maintained according to Honda maintenance schedule.
