Spot on. I am in this category of rider, that is of superior proportions.

I felt from the first day that the front end was undersprung for me.
Good suspension is a matter of balance. I changed the front from the stock springs to the available heavier unit and did the same for the rear and lost nothing in respect to comfort or compliance the translation but gained increased control. You cannot make up for being under-sprung by increasing damping. You will sacrifice compliance.
