I've toured on my Nishiki for years with a stubby 40mm stem. The older I got the shorter that stem got.
I have had no problems steering the bike under any conditions.
My LBs offered to lend me an adjustable LOOK stem to try out. Maybe you should try this on the 520. BTW one of the reasons I'm not on a new 520 is the "racy" position you described. The Sherpa fit me best so I bought it.
