Bad luck on the clutch. if it was me I'd not be making that trip, as it will get worse.
Mine went at about 12K, bought the bike 2nd hand from BMW in Reading with 9K on the clock and did a trip to Germany, and while there it started to slip, and by the time I got home 3K later it was slipping in 3,4 and 5. I was lucky as I'd only had the bike about 5 weeks BMW replaced it free of charge.
I think you need to write a letter if you don't have any warranty see if they will meet you part way with the cost. Be polite as you are more likely to get something from them rather than writing a snot-o-gram.
