    Question GS 150 shocks adjustment

    AoA guys!
    I was wondering if anyone could guide me on the pros and cons of adjusting the rear shocks of my GS 150?
    What am I expecting? I used to do a lot of traveling but not anymore. I hardly drive 20 to 30 kms a day on very, very smooth roads and keep my speed averagely around 50 to 80. There is around once a week heavy load on the bike but nothing over 200 kgs.
    Thanks in advance!

    My point is: what are the pros and cons.
    can anyone tell me the technical side of it?

    When you very loose them then bike suspension becomes very soft & yummy but on high speed of 100km/H or above your bike will be start bubbling from back side on bad road & you will be lost the control of your bike

    Jokes aside, that's exactly what's going to happen as @hamikhan said. And at softer setting, your shocks will worn out earlier.

    what about cornering? As I said earlier, I do not do much of speedy or long drives anymore. So I can live with the "bubbling"

    Softer suspension will compromise road grip, braking and cornering. But on the other hand you will experience a more pleasurable drive.
