Anyone have any suggested settings for preload and dampening for an RT? I'm looking for settings for solo aggressive riding (without bags), solo highway cruising (with bags loaded) and two-up cruising (135 lb. passenger and bags loaded). Thought someone with more experience with the bike could save me a bunch of trial and error.

I do not have the Electronic Suspension Adjustment (ESA).

I've had my RT for a year now. I've got 15,500 miles on it. When I want to ride the twisties I select the sport setting and single rider. I weight 255 and I get a good road hugging ride out of that set up. When I have my bags on (I have the large trunk) I select two riders and comfort and that gives me a good ride. I've used that setup on a few iron butt rides I've been on and I seem to stay comfortable and don't get beat up by the road. When I take along company (130lbs) I select the normal ride with two up and bags. depending on the load in the bags I some times find it necessary to adjust the headlight to the lower position. I hope this helps
