When to change a timing belt: Miles or years?

I just bought a 2001 Prelude w/74,000 miles on it but the timing belt hasn't been changed. I used to work at an Acura dealership and one of the service managers is going to see if one of the techs could do it on the side.

I'm worried though that it might break real soon because I think Honda recommends you change it after 105,000 miles or 7 years, which ever comes first. It's been 11 years now. What do you guys think?

^^I'm definitely replacing it but probably not until next week sometime. I'm afraid to drive it until then.

If it ran fine until then, you're fine. Inspect it just to make sure.
