Because a 5 year old bike only has 22,000 miles on it, I suspect the fuel as well. My 07 GT started stalling at 36,000 miles and the dealer tried everything they could think of with no luck. Finally at about 83,000 miles on it they got the OK from BMWNA to do a "deep" fuel injector cleaning. I am pretty sure it was more involved that just putting additives in the tank as it took 3.5 hours. It totally cured the stalling. My guess is your injectors are a little gummed up and the ethanol is not helping. Try fuel injection cleaner and a fuel additive. My dealer used GS650's for loaners so I have logged thousands of miles on them but can't recommend them for a road trip over the GT. I assume you have upgraded the cam gears, chain, tensioner and added the jumpguard, if not take the 650 anyway.
