Road trip gearing

I may be riding the 07 TW to the Blue Ridge Parkway from indiana and riding the whole thing then back home sometime in October with a friend on a klr. Im guessing around 1500+ miles. Just curious what other experience with 15/47 gearing is? Im a 150lbs and this will be a road only trip "well maybe some gravel" but no real offroading. Im thinking the uphills would be ok in 4th at 55-60. Im running 14/47 now but i do alot of trail riding around here and it will still pull 73-75 mph wide open. I would be changing the gearing once i get back home. Thoughts? Smart arse comments are welcome too!
