Greetings from Pennsylvania

I've been riding a 2005 Suzuki GS500F since I learned to ride almost 2 years ago, but now I feel it's time to graduate to a bigger bike. I like bikes with an upright seating position, and I like the retro look. That's what attracted me to the Triumph Bonneville line. I'm currently in the market for one, so I'll accept any advice. I sat on all of the bikes in the Bonneville line, and I think I like the SE the best. My local dealer has a 2009 Bonneville SE with leather bags and small windscreen for $9200, if I recall correctly. Is there any benefit to looking for a 2010 model? Are there any common issues I should know about?
