If possible I would recommend 500 miles of testing
i'd prefer to do at least a couple of hundred without the sidecar to ease the load on your new bottom end. the problem is the bottom end wants a peaceful low-load start to life and the rings want some serious work to bed in. so compromise is one-third to two-thirds throttle and vary your revs to help the rings, especially for the first 100 miles. so no steady-speed motorway riding. oil changes at 50, 500 and 1500 miles. and all of the above.
sounds like a fun trip coming up. has your dog got a helmet and googles like this photo? (sorry forum, i think its a b33 or M20 etc)

Awesome tips guys, I just got back from the garage now after fixing (I hope) an oil leak from the timing cover. Hoping to stick fresh tyres on the bike and get it through it's MOT on friday so I can start running it in. Will hopefully be out all weekend on it!.

As for the dog helmet....Of course, can't let the little bugger go deaf ;)

When you visit Llandudno, make sure you take the orme tramway, get to see some beautiful sites there, spent my teenage years on the north coast of Wales and then Telford by Shrewsbury. Always tell my wife how beautiful Wales is and one day will take her.

Hope you will have a great time and take plenty of pictures!
