Hi mileage Wee Strom

Hi all,

Brand new member here. I'm looking for opinions on this bike:
This is what I got from the owner regarding maintenance:

The usual wear items, chain, sprockets, oil, filter, brake pads, tires. Rear shock failed at 40k miles. The rear wheel bearings were replaced at 50k miles (preventive maint). The battery was new in 2011. Fork springs and fork oil were new in early 2012. it has Racetech emulators in the forks. Can't think of anything else. Last valve check was at 48k miles or so. It should be done every 15k.

I'm wondering if I should be scared off by the high mileage? I've posted about this on beginning biker as well and got some good feedback but I figure there no such thing as too many opinions.

Thanks in advance and glad to be a part of ADV
