TE450 Adventure Machine?

Here is a challenge - What does it take to make the Husky TE450 a good all-round adventure machine.

What is the right front : rear cog ratio for the road at an average speed of 50mph? (light load of about 200lbs)
Settings for best reliability on the road? (we are the master and the bike must behave!)
How to start and keep the engine running in very cold weather? (pretend you left it out one night.)

Testing this machine in severe Canadian cold weather (-50C worst case) and then drive it (on 80% road & 20% trail) to Death Valley (+100C). Will it survive?

Thanking you in advance for your Genius.
