For the automatics which is a 3 speed, there is no cure, no aftermarket gears. Ill just have to get used to it. Maybe in time I'll put a little taller tire in the rear. The 16" rims  make a big difference in handling, less body roll but a bumpier ride.  I also put new Bilstein shocks all around and larger South African brakes up front. The Westy is so much more pleasurable to drive now.

I've only put 3000 miles on it since the conversion and my confidence is back again.  We're taking it to Ohio (Dixie Bus) and Kentucky (Mammoth Caves NP) later this week.  Should be at least 2500 mi. round trip back to Long Island . Well end up at the Terryville Conn. the night before the show.
