Has anyone played with the supension to stop the bike wallowing around?
Yes. I have the lowered version of the GS, so needed to tighten up the suspension to stop everything hitting the floor when cornering erm.... enthusiastically! Rear suspension is wound up on max preload, which is fine for road riding. I changed the oil in the forks from 7.5 to 10 weight fork oil and put in 1/2 inch of washers to increase the preload.

Makes a great difference, the ride height is higher (less sag) and the front is much more controllable during braking and cornering.
