Good luck!
Since you asked about this particular ride I would have to consider that it is maybe 1500 miles from my place to the start. Would I want to ride the 230L up then back--not really I would take my XT350 as it is much better for on the road riding. The 230 is a 55-60 cruise bike for two lane. I can get more but it depends on conditions like hills wind etc. Yesterday I did 15 miles on the interstate doing 70 but it was hard on the bike-wfo. I use it out and back from the house all the time for 200 mile dual sport rides but if it requires interstate riding I go with the XT. As to what I'm carrying on the bike no problem doing this ride without a support vehicle.
