That being said if I were to do a long trip without a passenger I'd chose the silver wing over my vstrom every time.
+1 on the bolded part.
That's what got me selling my 650R.

I've got the opposite problem with my DT300 though, it's too stiff/sporty,
and I'd like a softer/plush ride.

Can fix it with preload at the back though since anything below 3/5 makes
the front end wobble and I loose a lot of feedback, not to mention issues
when riding with a passenger.

I'd like softer forks.
