New to 1200 GSA

I recently purchased a 2016 1200 GSA, this past weekend we rode trails in Allegheny trails in PA. I had my mode setting in Enduro and enduro pro and the rear was bottoming out. I can tell you I was not going hard. I rode regular dirt bikes for years and understand the sag settings on them but I can’t seem to find anything on setup for this bike. Any help out there?

I weigh 220 lb and ride with a heavy top box and keep ESA setting on solo with luggage on my 2014 GS! I drag pegs if I don't on compression bumps!

Adjust the ESA to a higher/stiffer setting. I set mine at Two-Up/Bags/Normal when I'm riding off road. The tallest/hardest setting (Two-Up/Bags/Hard) can be quite harsh, but that's what you may need.

I've been having some trouble with this too. Thanks! Should try it tomorrow.
