Softer Ride

Has anyone noticed that going over a bumpy road jars the hell out of you. Maybe it's just me or is it just a characteristic of this bike? I've been playing around with the preload, damping and combinations thereof on front and back, but I still don't seem to be able to get it right. Yes, I did see the thread 'How to fine tune your suspension'. I'm about 5' 11'' and 225 lbs and would really like a more softer, cushy ride. Any suggestions?

Suspension settings

Hi, I am 200lb and same height. Riding mostly on New Zealand backroads, which are notoriously bumpy, I have got mine set to full soft everywhere except rear preload on setting# 3 (from full soft). This gives me an acceptably soft ride without compromising cornering (too much!). I am now going to make SMALL adjustments as and when deemed neccessary.
