Default Mileage on a 116. C'mon H/C, help me out here

Just want to know how many times you can run a 116 cold before you start hurting it.

Backstory to question...
Alright, 3 weeks ago today i totaled my 2010 Skull bike. Coming back from lunch on the highway, running the cruise control and doing about 65ish in the left lane. I was about 2 cars behind an F150 and i dont remember too much detail until the bad parts. I remember the truck jerking over to the right lane so hard he almost lost control, and there was a car in the left lane (not sure if he had just pulled out or was camping) running somewhere between 25 and 30 mph. I grabbed the brakes and tried to shed some speed but it was obvious i wasn't going to make it. The back end locked up and was fishtailing on me, so i just tried to point it towards the median. She high sided me and i landed on my head. Cracked my helmet, shattered my collarbone into 5 pieces, dislocated my shoulder, and took out about 4/5 ribs on the handlebars before i left the saddle. Then my beautiful girl hit her side (i was upside down but i watched it happen) and decided she wanted to be with me. She chased me into the ditch (luckily she missed me).

Im recovering and not looking for a pity party but the bike is totaled and I'm looking at a few different ones to replace her. I'm asking because one of the bikes is a 116ci with 37k on her. i dont think thats too many miles, just wondering because its at a dealer, so im sure they dont warm it up properly before they take it out for "test rides". Is it worth all that id save on getting the 116 vs the potential damage that may have already been done to it by salesmen that dont know how/care to properly warm up an engine. this question is mostly to Half Crazy but anybody else that KNOWS feel free to jump in.

Well... 37,000 miles wouldn't bother me, but I would hesitate to buy a big bore if I didn't know the history of it.

Who built it? Who tuned it? Who owned it? How was it ridden/treated? Have they let people test ride it? Did they warm it up?

It doesn't matter what the engine, you should be warming it up anyway. Your stock 106 can be all scorched up from running it hard when cold.

@HowardGNelson Glad to read you're on the mend and here to make a decision on new ride .....
Personally I'd steer around somebody else's heavily engine modified bike.

Glad to hear you survived the smash, wishing you a speedy recovery.
Any used machine is a gamble of sorts, I'd say a thorough inspection including a compression test should show up the general condition.
Could be a bargain or a bomb, if the price is right I'd be taking it for a ride.
Probably cammed up as well, surely there's some history on it.
