990 adventure vs BMW 800GS

I am looking at a 990 adventure to replace my BMW 800 GS. Issues that bother me are the seat, shocks, wind screen and wobble at high speed. I'm coming from a 1100 GS that I rode all over the Northwest including many miles on jeep trails and gravel. I'm disappointed with the highway and high speed performance of the GS 800, though it is better off road than the 1100 GS. I tend to ride 70-80 mph on the freeway with extended time off road on Forest Service roads. I am concerned about the fuel economy of the 990 but otherwise seems to fit the bill. Thanks Steve
