Engine life

I was wondering what kinda engine life these 750 have? The 04 I just bought has 18,000 on it, and runs great. I know the previous owner used to ride it to work alot, which was a 60 mile round trip, so lots of highway miles.
What kind of miles does everyone else have, and is there anything I should watch out for?

The most important part is keeping up with your fluid changes (oil, coolant, brake, spline lube, differential, etc) is the most important aspect of a vehicles (bikes, cars, boats, etc) long life.

I can't speak to mileage since I just rolled over 5000 miles on my '04 bike (1200 miles when I bought it off of a CL tow company as a repo).

2004 Vulcan 750
Purchased November 9th, 2010 w/1216 miles
Found on CL - listed for 3k paid $2400

I think this gets asked every month.(there is a search function here you might find useful)

Motors can go 70-80,000 miles with proper care before major work is needed.
