That sounds like plenty of interstate speed time to me.

I'd suggest something like a Versys or Vstrom with hard luggage (to deal with rain, you'd be surprised how little rain matters with good gear and hard luggage), or something else with similar ergos.

I might have a well-equipped wee strom available for a good price before too long
