long distance sport touring

Hey, guys:
Anyone here like 'goin yonder' on a sportstandard, or modified version thereof? I set up a GS650M Katana back in 83 with full fairing, bags, trunk and Corbin tour seat--and had a blast with it! Course, nobody knew quite what it WAS, neither fish nor fowl, but I put 168,000 miles on the sucker, and won a fair share of trophies on the rally circuit. Did the same treatment to a VX800, and now have begun transmogrifyng a 1200 Bandit.

I want the best of both worlds: sportbike looks and performance, touring comfort, reliability and carrying capacity. Greedy pig, ain't I?

Anyone else interested in this particular/peculiar niche?

...not all who wander are lost...
