Sorry to hear of the reason for your trip, but you're right - I took my 82 up to Toronto, around that area, and back home the weekend before last, rode a total of around 1200 miles all told, and it never missed a beat. I cruised home at around 75 mph, late Sunday night across I-90, it was quiet solitude accompanied by about 4,500 rpm. Just wonderful. These bikes are utterly dependable.
