Changing the rear shock angle slightly softened the ride a bit - a good thing. I have yet to test it two-up or fully loaded but there's still plenty of preload available for that. I may have actually picked up 1/2" of travel up front - even after backing way off on preload and rebound adjustments. I bought the bike largely for its lightweight feel and nimble manners - all still there. Fun meter still pegged. If anything, the bike might get a tiny bit twitchy over 85mph which is a tradeoff I can live with. I'll play with the adjustments some more before my next road trip.
