I've always set my ride to be on the stiffer side. I don't like too soft of a ride as I can't feel the chassis react to input. Maybe it's left from my sport bike days, but it works good for me. I usually set shock pre-load stiffer and will run tire pressure to high end of manufacturers recommendations. I can feel what the bike is doing set like this rather than having to wait for the chassis to load in order to give me feedback. With me only weighing 125, my stiff setup will be most people's normal. Glad you are liking it.
