That would be an epic journey!
Be sure to take a laptop along and document the voyage.
Friction material of the clutch should not make significant difference, as it will be fully engaged most the time. I think the bearing version of the MT clutch would be beneficial, if your rig can use that clutch.
Wow! what an adventure!
Plan very well, or be very flexible. :-)
I would suspect you would average 15mph overall.
My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
