Ride street tires. Carry extra tires. Carry 2 months worth of gear, food and alcohol on a 2-day trip. At least 10 gallons of fuel. Do it 2-up. Sit backwards on the bike. I'm sure a creative guy like you can think of lots more ways to have fun and challenge yourself. Add tacos and beer and it's all good.
Wally, is that two-up idea an invite? It sounds like a Fabulous experience (said with a slight lisp and a flick of the wrist)!
