Chances are if he takes that much pride in keeping it nice, he keeps up on the maintenance as well. As far as make-specific things to look for, I wish I could help you, but if it were me, I'd just be looking for signs of crashes or misuse (some of the first things I look for are leaking fork seals and rubber on the undertail from burnouts). Chances are, someone who puts 14K on a bike and keeps it looking nice doesn't abuse it. Just give it a thorough once-over, or see if you can find a local bike mechanic that will meet you out there and go over it for you.
What is your overall impression of the owner? Age/maturity/etc can tell you a lot about how they treat bikes too.
