That is a long way to travel with such a heavy load

If it was all freeway you may be fine but trying to stop is gonna be very hard

i'd have someone drive your truck and just ride the bike yourself if you have someone going with you. you could allways fly back and ride the bike later....my $.02

I don't think I'd recommend that, but it's not impossible.
