    Come on man, guys on xBhp has successfully completed saddlesore on P135 which is just 10cc larger than Super Splendor. All I'd say is get the headlight upgraded by rewinding the stator and installing an ape RR and install a HID. You need very good light while touring.
    I am back!

    Sure. Take a 15 min break every 80-100 kms and it shud be fine.

    If I may poke my nose here the SZR is a very capable bike, I myself did a blr-mumbai and back on it about 3 months back very stable at 70-75. If you can handle it, feel safe to go for 150-170 kms non stop at those speeds. Just make sure you lube the chain really well before the ride

    Yes she is. I cleaned the chain a month back and every 15 days I lube it with a chain lubricant. it has significantly increased her performance.
