Make my wee-strom a wind-strom

The winds http://www.laalmanac.com/weather/we23.htm are kicking up. I'm looking for riding advice and bike set up advice.
I ride a stock DL650k6 and weigh 150 pounds. I have removed the windshield so far.
I'm planing to lower the front/rear, adjust the preload to stiff and drop the tire pressure to 33/36.
will tires, lower fairing, changing rear shock, front spring/oil, moving/removing mirrors, adding/removing a tail bag make any difference?
Is there anything other modes I can do.
I'm being blown around really bad. Not "a 18 wheeler drove by my at 80mph" bad but blown into the breakdown lane bad and I almost SH*T myself bad.
