It's my only bike now, so it'll see at least 10 K per year...hopefully reports of a few in the 40-50K range with no major overhauls were true.

So that bike lasted to 29,139 on the odometer. I think I'll do a rebuild and see how much I can get of it.

Of course a friend of mine never drank or smoked and croaked at 39. I drink and used to smoke and I eat crap for food and the doctor thinks I'm lying based on my blood work.
Best guess is that the DR engine is low stressed and overbuilt and should be a strong runner for a long time. Buy a KTM or other thoroughbred and the manual tells you to figure a top end every year or so.
