919 in NW GA

It's been well over a year since I've been on the forum. I'm going to start trying to ride year round again, and need to upgrade the rear and my saddle. What's the consensus on what to upgrade first, Ohlins or saddle? I'll have to do a piece at a time so I'm trying to figure out what to tackle first. My commute will be roughly 115 miles and about 2.5 hrs per day total, with a decent mix of hwy, twisties, and interstate. Pics of the 'ole girl attached.

Saddle is my vote but each will compliment the other.

Very nice bike. 17/44 520 conversion is popular for commuting (im sure YOU know that). I will be doing this shortly myself.
