So the software is basically returning the suspension parameters to it's original OEM settings?
Or does it allow for some fine tuning?

No tuning. You start the calibration, it runs the suspension through its range, it tells you when it is completed.

I recently became the new owner of a 2022 RT.
Great bike, horrible suspension. It pogos on road setting. I ride mostly one up. I weigh 90kg. On some occasions on tight aggressively lean in corners it even refuses to turn in ( very scary experience). Far too soft when just me on the bike. Everything is fine in Dynamic mode but it can be tiring and slightly on the stiff side.
Has anyone experienced this as I hear from suspension specialist that my experience is not an isolated one. BMW usually deny any problems until they get a solution, then quietly fix it.
I have a '22 GSA/low suspension and find the same thing. Rear suspension porpoises in Road setting. I haven't experienced ay reluctance to turning in and wonder if that might be caused by rear tire wear from a lot of interstate riding? I have the "Pro" suspension. I use Dynamic Pro and set everything to "Road" except the suspension, which I leave in Dynamic. I don't ride 2-up but I usually have rear bags on with some stuff in at least one of them. I set the rear pre-load to Auto. For long highway drones, I put it in Road and put up with occasional pogo-ing. For everything else "Dynamic Pro, set as you describe. The GSA also has Enduro and Enduro Pro. I use Enduro for unpaved surfaces (no cruise control available in Eunduro, btw). This is recommended for 90/10 or street tires on unpaved roads and I feel like it's pretty good.

Agree that rear rebound damping could be a bit stronger in "Road.

There is one additional option:
Bike in Neutral - Engine running: Go to Settings/ Assit/ Load - one can choose between Automatic or Minimum.

If and how that will impact the damping of the bike?
Dalton:

That's more a spring pre-load/ride height thing. If you're short and don't have low suspension or seat, this is a work-around. Auto is better because you don't risk bottoming the suspension.
