I'm back for good

It's been about three years since I sold my 2003 KLR. I got back into the Harley thing and bought me an Ultra Classic. I sincerely hated that bike, friends would ask me why I didn't ride. Truth be told the bike just wasn't a KLR. So I sold the Ultra and found a lightly used 2006 bright green KLR and couldn't be happier. Now is there anyone in Georgia that can help me with the Doohickey?

I'd be curious what you disliked specifically...

Being more specific....I very much disliked the steering. Very heavy but wanted to tuck under at low speed. I have a cruiser. A 1500 Vulcan Nomad. It is much easier to handle, especially in the parking lot!
