Congrats on the new bike!
How fast did you get her up to on the way home?
Lol, wife wasn't as excited as me so it was a solo trip at 5am.
"Chain didn't look to hot" Can you elaborate on that? With 140 miles it should not have any noticeable wear at all. The sprockets should be crisp and clean short of maybe some lubricating oil on them. Some rust from sitting around wet after being washed might be expected and especially if the chain was neglected with lubrication.
On the other hand, If there is noticeable wear to the chain and sprockets then you can be certain that the speedo was disconnected or replaced and the stated mileage is BS.

That is a really clean looking bike! Even with mileage that low, I would still check everything over. Make sure that the carburetor, gas tank, oil, plug, etc. are good to go. Congratulations and I hope that you enjoy riding it.
A TW will last a long time with proper care, I had 24000 miles on mine when I traded it for the BMW f700gs.It still ran great and still had origional power and used no oil. I used Shell Rotella 15-40. The TW is a great bike and Yamaha makes good products.
Gary, chain was a bit rusted, i assume never lubed since new. Everything else mint, tits still on tires. Does have a bit of a flat/weak spot just above idle. I've read on here adjust idle mixture screw I believe? Other than that tight and smooth.
I've taken chains like that off and dipped the whole thing in used motor oil. I left it dripping for about a day then ran it for about 12000 miles. Of course I kept it well lubed the rest of its life. To each his own though. If replacing use an o ring or x ring chain. These have a much longer life and stretch much less. Find the highest tensile strength available also.
