I watched this a few times, and wonder if he had a steering stabilizer if it would haved helped? I am really looking forward to this r/r for the following reasons:
1. I too have an 06 DRZ and plan to ride the TAT
2. Sounds like you have enough life experiences to shed some interesting introspection
3. Self-admitted head case. Hell, join the club brother!
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"
