Decent Deal

Have a chance to buy a ex500 for $3k. It's an 07 with 24k miles. Maintence has been "ok". Would you think that's a decent deal for a commuting bike? Mileage is high since the guy rode rain or shine in Cali for a while and also in Texas a his only vehicle. He's a little rough on his stuff, and laid it down at 30 mph or so, but no major damage. Best friend, but want you opinion on the price and risk involved since he has slack a bit on valve maintenance a bit. Otherwise i think he's been good about the oil changes.
