I think way too much effort goes into "what-if" drills in general. Let me suggest another approach:

You've got a bike you like to ride. Go ride it. If you need lights, get some lights. If you need to carry a change of clothes, get a big saddle bag and ride it to a motel or B&B for a weekend. Extend your range, and have fun. If you ever get to a situation where you say to yourself, "This bike is keeping me from doing what I want to do," that's the time to get a new bike.

Unless you just want a new bike. If that's the case, go buy one.
