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'll be fine. You'll appreciate the minimal vibe compared to the 250. Little accessory padding wouldn't hurt.
