I would just make sure it's properly checked out by a trusted bike mechanic first. Good luck with the ride and have fun with the turns!

The bike will be fine. Make sure your maintenance is good and as well as your tires and pressure. You have the stock exhaust so you won't have to worry about any of the obnoxiously loud drones of aftermarket exhaust for that long of ride.
