Relax! And go enjoy, I went on a 9 day 6200 mile solo trip this past April
I can't wait for next years "annual" spring ride. The last two years I've taken a week in the spring and just rode. Such a mind clearing soul cleansing experience. It will happen every year as long as I'm able.

Bike sounds ready... just make sure YOU are ready.

Firefighter to firefighter.. we both know firemen always seem to have that extra gear inside us to push on just a little bit more when it matters. Just try not to shift into that gear during the trip. Travel as far as you are comfortable and don't push too hard.

If you have a headlight modulator, make sure you have the paperwork to show to an LEO. Buddy I was riding with in Cali was pulled over and he did not hove his paperwork on the modulator but I did. Saved a ticket. Be nice when training the LEO's.
