I highly recommend a Corbin gunfighter and lady saddle. Another good investment is a gortex riding suit for her. I have a 95 VFr with a corbin seat and backrest. My wife and I regularly do 250 plus mile days together on the VFR. We also have a wing for the longer trips but she still prefers the VFR for fast and fun riding.
I've already checked out Corbin. The 'Bird's seat was quite comfy for the 3 hr ride home, but I'm sure I'll need a backrest. Is the passenger seat/backrest from Corbin a huge difference or will the backpad on the tailtrunk from Givi work as well?
Glad you finally got your new baby home. Congrats.
All I can suggest is good riding suits to keep you warm and cool. Aerostich and widder electric vests/shirts ought to do the trick. Bigger windshield maybe if you want to go that way. I've never had a big screen so I'm not sure what I'm missing but you see lots of people add those.
Climate control is the ONLY weakness I've found with bikes and long tours. Never know what Ma Nature is gonna serve up as the weather du jour.

All I really need now is a little weather co-operation. While I was out of town this weekend we saw mid sixties ( pretty good for around here), coming home I drove thru 2 inches of snow and the high tomorrow will be 32.
