Just kidding, calm down
Besides the build which will break down and need parts there are laws in each state on riding MaBs

Be sure you can afford to have down time fixing and be sure you will not get your bike impounded and need even more money to get it out.

However I do like the movie idea and have thought about writing a book too.

Seriously this is 90% idea and 10% practice on a low budget.

I travel about 3 minutes a mile at best so calculate your distance at 3 minutes a mile and the need to stop every couple of hours just to get an idea of the time required.
Six hours a day of riding would be a lot.

Good luck
