If you actually like putting the light where it needs to go, which is on the ground, I would suggest against just a cheap HID kit. The correct way to do HIDs is a complete projector kit. HIDs reflect the light in a different way than the halogen bulbs which will result in scattered light.

*I recommend against buying from him. I had an issue with him a few years ago. Great information, terrible service*
I think the brightest stock replacement option available is this bulb, a H7/H9 hybrid with an impressive lumens increase. I have one of these on each of my bikes on the low beam and am greatly impressed.
2600 miles is short. I'm at well over 5k on my R3 and 3k on my BMW. But bulb life can vary. But part of paying for a higher performing bulb is accepting you will get a shorter life span.
I'd rather pay a few extra bucks for a light bulb that helps me see at night than on lunch out one day. My commute to and from work is usually in the dark as I work 11 hour days. Ability to see is important for me.
