The manual's description isn't very accurate, is it? It says that the preload is softened or stiffened (not that the suspension is softened or stiffened) when it probably should say that the preload raises or lowers the bike on the suspension to suit the loaded riding weight to minimize bottoming out or topping out.
"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.
"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
Marcus Tullius Cicero
