The best lighting upgrade I've made to my 1150GS has been HID bulbs in the head lights. The 1150 headlight seems like it is made for it. It has a good cut off so you don't blind oncoming drivers. ...

1150 GS FD bearing removal questions

I'd go for the lighter and slimmer '09. I rarely fill up my ADV tank all the way, too much weight. But if you really do commute 120 miles each day then the big tank would be useful.
