Timan, don't sweat it. You'll wear out before your bike does, interstate or not. On my trip, I'd guesstimate 5000 of the 9000 miles were interstate riding. I'd travel from point to point on interstate and then spend several days exploring each place I stopped. I had many 6, 8, or 10 hour days droning on the slab at my normal 80 mph. Weather ranged from 95+ degree days in southern Texas to snow in Yellowstone. I never had a problem with the bike. Just make sure you perform all maintenance before you go, mainly fresh rubber and fluids, tighten all connections, inspect your chain (and your wallet!) and go. Enjoy!

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. (Mark Twain)
