Keep in mind that it also depends on your riding background and what you're used to. If you're coming off the dirt, a KLR, etc., you'll be much more used to soft suspension. If you're coming off a sportbike, you'll be much more used to hard suspension.
I'm 6'1", 320lbs. I've not ridden a V, but when I sat on one the rear sank more than I'd like. I'm used to sport-ish bikes (had both generations of Yamaha's FZ1 and currently have a 2007 Tuono), so I'd probably crank the rear preload up a bit to suit my preference.
