Boy that sounds great, I lived in Tulsa 1980-1990 and loved to ride western Arkansas. Great roads, poeple and food.
I have a set of summer kevlar pants and they are so comfortable in the heat.
You may want to keep that wheel shim handy. New tires do not pull as hard as worn tires.
I have the same bike, but mine is the faster Peidmont Red.
As I remember the humidty there is higher than the temp. You may want to try a bag of ice under that jacket. I use a plasic water bag with a hose for drinking that I fill with ice to keep me from melting in the desert heat in Nevada.
Be good, be fast, be carefull.
