On that note, thats part of the reason why i am anxious to make a fairing for my Ninja. A streamlined shape will elongate my bike a good foot or 2 in the front and another foot in the rear. I plan on designing some sort of drawer trunk in the front of the fairing (theres going to be a lot of dead space) so as the small weight of luggage i usually carry can be placed over the front of the bike, which makes it more stable.
Doing my part to reduce dependence on OIL
Doing my part to reduce congestion
And enjoying it!

If you have to use your brakes, you are driving too fast!
