at this point in time, all of the "problems" that would show up with the Gen 1 bikes would have already shown up.

If the bike is low miles the frame cracks might not have shown up yet. I agree that most owners of the early wings have had the recalls completed but there are still out there that have not had it completed.
Here are a few places that cracks have appeared, some are not covered under Honda re weld program
There are other areas that are known to crack on pre 05 models.

Here is a picture of where to look. The most common is right behind the passenger footrest. You will have to remove the passenger floor board and silver cover. You may also be able to see it from underneath the bike.
