Poverty Spec ADV Bike

I've always wanted an adv bike similar to a BMW/KTM But I don't wanna pay to keep one on the road or even invest in the msrp of one. So I am now the lucky owner of a 2007 Kawasaki KLR 650. She has 3010 miles on her, is in decent shape, and I got her for $2000 bucks.
I know the bike was strapped down wrong in the pic so don't worry I made it home safe and looked up how to do it correctly if I need in the future. lol

1. Mods
Does anybody know of any good front end streamlining kits?
I'm thinking for the most part this 20" tinted one looks like the best option right now.

2. I will probably throw in all of my backpacking gear I have which fits in a single backpack, maybe a hard case from harbor freight, an amazon waterproof usb plug in, and a isolated ram mount for GPS/Phone etc...

Anybody in the NWA area(Arkansas)?
Looking to forward to doing a lot of motorcycle camping as my knees at the age of 24 can't really do any hiking anymore.

I forget what size exactly this one is, but it's a harbor freight "pelican" case. I added some u-bolts to make strapping things down on the lid or strapping the lid itself down easier. I also have givi quick release side cases. I think they are really convenient, but I wouldn't mind something a little bit larger.

Have you read about the trans-america trail? I don't live near you, but if you were considering riding it maybe we can meet up for it.

I live about an hour from it actually. I was just looking it up yesterday when i saw it being mentioned in Arkansas. Starting to sound like a good trip for some upcoming free time.
