You might try making just a rear faring to start with and not have it slide back seeing as how the largest chunk of your aerodynamic drag is the rear of the vehicle.
The more mass you have at the front of the motorcycle the worse it will handle and the harder it will be to control in side winds.
Smooth touring tires will also help, try to find some silica rubber LRR motorcycle tires, they cost a little more but they have great traction and last.
