If the only major drawback of the GS is the driveshaft, and an aftermarket rebuildable one runs about $425 USD, it seems more economical to go that route than a new front end and brakes on a G/S. As for weight, the amount of gear you pack for a serious trip will probably negate any small difference between the two. I do like tubeless rims as well. Sorry to flog a horse thats already at the glue factory
Cheers
