2015 Rear shock adjustments

I have about 2500 miles on my 15 and am stilling trying to find the best setting for the rear adjustable shocks. According to the manual for a 200lb(which I am) rider it says to set it at 0 or all the way to the lowest setting. I have played with the settings and have moved them to 3 or 4 turns and it seems to ride better for me. Any comments on other noticeable differences?

I'm 210 and have mine turned in about 5/8 the way to full preload. I like a firm ride.

I haven't tried them that firm, I may have to give it a try.

I tried them about 1/3 the way up the scale and it did seem like a better ride. Will try more adjustments this week.
