Most definitely go. You just read above about BikerBill's 1000 mile run. That was on a 500. On Sunday I did a 500 mile, one day run on my 750.
Your bike has far more endurance and stamina than you do. It'll do that with ease. Can you?
If you've never done a really long run then I suggest that you start with fairly long runs ahead of trip time so as to discover your needs (drink, some kind of seat covering, sun lotion, etc) before you commit to doing the trip. Do some 200+ mile runs first, maybe bumping it up a lot more in mileage a few times.
This will educate you on what its like and things to take along to make it enjoyable. Also, make at least one of those runs fully loaded so you have the feel of the machine in its full-distance mode and so you can perfect and adjust your tie-down procedures accordingly.
As long as the bike has proper fluid levels and the tires are good and aired up properly, it should be fine. But YOU and the load you'll be taking need to be worked out before the real trip comes along.
