60,000 is as good a time as ever. If it gives you a sense of security, do it. The bearings are not very expensive at all. I get mine from a local bearing supply. I make sure that they are not Chinese bearings. They don't last very long at all. However, bearings supplied by Honda are probably the best way to go.
Personally, I check the bearings every time I remove the wheels. If they are ever a little suspect, I replace them.
I keep a set of spare bearings and seals on hand.

Can't hurt. Gives peace of mind, and you're good for another 60K miles. As mentioned, inexpensive maintenance item.
