BMW needs to build a GS750 boxer under 400 pds. 3/4 the size of a 1200 GS designed to be serviced by the owner.

Agreed ! I'm finding my girl a wee bit heavy although my energy is down at the moment.
I'm considering a G650 CX.

This is my daily rider. Did a full service, tires, tune up with valve check, oil and filter change in one afternoon. If I get old and weaker I can lower it without buying anything. The forks can be reconfigured to sit lower and the rear linkage has lower position set up. You just have to buy a shorter sidestand, or simply cut down the original. Air cooled, carb, jam nut valve adjustment, 324 pounds stock,, manufactured in Japan.
