Let me be honest. It would appear some of the repairs have been less than professional. That makes me wonder if there are other repairs that need " cleaning up " as well. I don't know the belt change interval on your bike, but on many models the timing belts should be changed in less than 4000 miles so you are probably due already and will need 2 belt changes during your trip, also chains and tires. You haven't mentioned a valve adjustment, so that may need to be done before you leave. There is nothing wrong with going on a trip with an old Ducati, but you need to get the maintenance and repairs up to date. Put yourself in a position to succeed.
