Pascal, 75kg makes you a fly weight or jockey in this land of the great white beer belly.

I believe the main problem with the stock suspension is too much "hi-speed" compression damping.
The compression adjuster on the Sachs mainly adjusts lo-speed damping, this comes into play when cornering hard and the suspension wants to sag or collapse.
But on big bumps you get hydraulic lock as the oil can't flow fast enough so the shock cannot compress. If your roads are smooth, you won't notice the problem.

Find a 165lb GRiSO owner with a top dollar shock and take it for a ride, you will appreciate the difference.

That I would like to try and it makes sense.^^^^^^^^^
I guess I'm used to crappy suspension and off road riding...
If I can stay with the local guys in the twisties while they're on much faster and lighter bikes, I'd love to see what happens with a top dollar set up! Laughing Laughing

And that my friend is the whole secret to ROAD riding, a properly set up compliant suspension that totally smooths out all the bumps on shit roads. You ride as if you were on a billiard table smooth surface, with little physical input, feeling relaxed and enjoying the ride. While others with their race track inspired set up (rock hard) suspension, work hard and get bounced all over the place.

Hey, this is a Guzzi secret OK.

I've gone and blown another fork seal. Sod it, just what I don't need Mad  I'm also cash strapped at the moment so I dunno if I can afford the Matris kit. I reckon I'll find the money somehow but it's a PITA. Too many wheelies and a big pothole did for it this time. I suppose it's an object lesson in being more responsible.

And now it's snowing! Fuck! Rolling Eyes

Dunno how you handle the continuous shit winter weather in your area - I would have a meltdown I think. People in the northern hemisphere that have severe, isolating winters must REALLY look forward to the freedom of summer
