Have a 4000 mile trip planned, with 500-600 mile days. This is a pretty good bike for this, yes? Fuel range is about 150 miles to reserve? If it matters I have done 400 mile days on my dual sport, all street without issue.
Sounds like your ass can take a pounding...you'll be fine. You'll appreciate the minimal vibe compared to the 250. Little accessory padding wouldn't hurt.
