I've gone from GS1200 to the 800, just got a GSA1200 and traded in the 800.

The 800 will provide you with a better bike than you had, and will also limit you to what you had done before.

Thanks!

I went with the BMW bash plate since it seemed to cover much more up front, and the SW-Motech crash bars. Seemed stout to me after installing them, but haven't "tested" them yet.

I belive that once 911 is activated, the only way to turn tracking (not just checking in) on is to log on and re-set the device.
