'01 1150gs fork seals leaking

Alright I'm looking for some info. I bought my first GS March 2012 and have put a respectable 15,000miles on it myself. It's now at 56,000 and the fork seals have started slobbering like a pit bull in heat. I've researched the OEM part numbers I need/want on realoem.com and am prepared to make my purchase and perform the job myself.

My question is would ya'll recommend me going back to the factory seals AND oil, or does someone have a better suggestion? I have looked back and couldn't find any posts on this; but I know I am not the first GSer to come to this point. I am 6'4" and weigh 230lbs. Most of my riding is commuting, but the bike does not go long inbetween mudbaths. I do ride two-up on several occasions as well. I just wanna know my options and know what others have done and had success with
