Or am I missing something (not uncommon for me )?

From what I saw on my dealer's demo bike the Skyhook has all the same adjustibility that the Ohlins had, just that in addition, it also has active dampening. So you can still tweak it to your liking, but if you had it setup for stiff, and run across a patch of washboard, it will adjust to the changing conditions. Whether or not that's to the benefit of the rider is for each person to decide for themselves.
