Sadly you have to meet this head on. I just searched and found this decent write-up for suspensions. Learn the jargon, the mechanics and go from there.
If you do not want to go with an adjustable fork, then springs and different viscosity oil might be the best option for you. This is a quick fix that many people like. After you read up on suspension, then come back to the forum and search it (I usually search via google, what ever I want + advrider typed in the search box).
