High mileage for DR 350?

Looking for a DR 350 as a second bike. What's considered high mileage on these? I'm interested in one that has roughly 54,000 miles on it. How long do these engines last in general if the owner keeps up with maintenance?

Post your question in the DR350 thread and you should get some responses. 54,000 is a lot of miles on a DR350, but that's because dual sports don't typically get the highway miles on them that the adventure touring and sport tourers do. This one obviously has. If it's been well maintained though tjst DR350 should be good as the engine is known to be pretty bulletproof if you don't let them run low on oil.

even with that mileage...
if it runs & shifts well, rings & a valve job eventually should make it fairly fresh
