It should be fairly easy to fab up a bigger sump or tank for the oil plus fitting a cooler would help things out a bit.
more oil with an oil cooler should space your change intervals out abit. If you are going to do distance, gear the bike for it and cruise at 5-6k rpm. No need to pull the ear all the time!
