similar rider weight here, with a '15 Versys. Riding on pavement, some poorer quality roads with expansion joint issues, pothole patches, etc. We might have Boeing, MSoft, Amazon, and Starbucks, but the State of Washington doesn't seem to have squat to put into road maintenance right now!
I can't remember the exact settings but - rear shock I have pretty close to factory "soft" setting. Front preload is adjusted a bit for the "heavier / bad road" setting direction, dampening is close to factory.
I noticed that my bike was not set anywhere near factory presets.
I'm still tweaking things a bit but this seems to have smoothed things out a bit for me. I get a decent amount of front dive at stops and such but that's a trade-off for being more comfortable when in motion. Hope that helps a bit.
