Not saying that you're a wimp, just that in my experience, numbness is always related to how tight I'm holding the bars. My XT660R, a thumper, was vibey and the vibes got worse when I installed Acerbis Rally Pro handguards, back then very expensive, so I rode that bike for a long time like that. That bike would put both my hands to sleep in 5 minutes if my grip on the bars was too tight.
Also, as I said, vibes are a very personal issue.
By the way, I've also found that on my Versys the vibes change a lot depending on chain adjustment.
