'04 Wee 80k miles $2200 Rat?

Howdy! Like the title says...I stumbled across the bike at a dealer Saturday. Didn't get to ride it or hear it run but plan on doing that tomorrow. The bike looks as though its been flogged pretty good (rock/pock marks, scratches) but no major damage. Windscreen has seen better days. Oh, and 80k plus miles!
The good--new tires, new chain, oil looked good, front and rear guards, top box, and some kind of monster skid-plate (it looks deadly!:mrgreen They're asking $2200, could probably make cheaper offer. I'm thinking for the price I could paint a Jolly Roger on the fairing and just ride it like crazy? Any input VERY much appreciated! (wondering if the bike belonged to anyone here....it's located in Fort Worth, TX )

Got to take a good long look at it today. Looks good! No leaks or anything cracked up. Sounds great, no ticks or banging etc. Clutch, brakes all good. One owner bike. Talked with the actual owner, said maintenance was always priority, has three to four bikes at a time. I'm leaning 90% on getting it. Any thoughts or input? Please? Help? Anybody out there?
