Question Ohlins versus Stock Suspension (R1200GS)

How much better is the Ohlins than the stock suspension? I understand differences in adjustability and rebuildability, but I'm looking for a more qualitative difference.
Will I notice that the Ohlins is that much better and smile to myself at the $1500 well spent on every ride?
I bought my R1200GS used this summer (its an 05) with 3k miles on it. It has 6k now. I was planning on waiting until I notice the stockers getting a little worn before replacing them, but if it'll be night and day, I'll do it now (before I head out for a 2 week trip on 9/17). I put Ohlins on my 02 RT at 18k miles and I noticed a big difference. Some of this was because the RT shocks were tired, but it felt more stable than ever and two-up (or loaded) adjustability and performance was outstanding.
