Not sure if you were talking to me or not.. but....

The GS750 had a very small gas tank, got pretty poor gas mileage(about 30 give or take a bit), no wind protection at all for longer rides and was just old and i didn't trust it on long trips. Went looking for a used DL1000 and ended up getting a new 650.

There are some aftermarket headlight/windscreen type things available in most catalogs(like for super motards and streetfighters ...etc..) but not sure if that is big enough for what your wanting.
