Progressive springs in the front and a fork brace will help a lot. I run 50lbs or more in the rear riding 2 up. Tire pressure should be 40 front and 42 rear.

Dingdong pretty much answered Your problem, Progress frt. springs eliminated the problem Your describing on My previous 95 Gl if the later model has the same setup honda used a spacer and a short spring, With the the progressives You pitch the spacer because the springs are longer. Tremendous difference over the stock setup.
