Advice on suspension setting

1064 6
I’m on the Northern California coast and looking to do the Lost Coast Road again. This is a notoriously geologically unstable region, and the roads are mostly paved and very choppy. We rode it a few years back on my Moto Guzzi, and it was pretty brutal. Of course the MS has much more sophisticated suspension, what I’m really needing in this situation is lots of compliance. I’ve not had a chance to play with Enduro mode, but as this is paved road, likely to be wet, and I have a passenger, maybe Urban mode? What would be the advantages and disadvantages to Enduro mode? Thanks!

Advantages of Enduro mode are softest (most compliant) settings to help with the bumps. Disadvantages are I think traction control and ABS are turned off, and especially with a passenger I'd worry that the bike would feel wallow-y riding on pavement. Also Enduro mode is the most power-limited, I want to say it limits you to 100hp. I would choose touring over urban mode, as urban assumes smooth city streets as far as suspension goes, and also limits power. Whatever setting you choose, I think preload still needs to be set up appropriate for the weight of your load, i.e. it'll be a different setting, particularly the rear, if you're carrying a lot of gear and/or a passenger. You can all the different modes when you get there and pick the one you like the best.
