spi, registers, and values

Hello all, I have a ADIS16210. I am able to read from it all right, but my question comes about how do I write to the registers? I have a specific address, and a specific value, but how do I program the Arduino to do that?
Is is just 2 consecutive spi.transfers?
Here is the datasheet http://www.analog.com/static/imported-files/data_sheets/ADIS16210.pdf
look at table 23


Pretty much - that's how you shift 16 bits out.

Here is the code that I have. I can read from the sensor fine, but it’s still the default 1 sample per second. I would like to get 128 samples per second. Thanks!

#include <SPI.h>

int ss=10;
int ax, ax_l, ay, az;
int datax, datay, dataz; 

void setup()
  Serial.begin (9600);
  pinMode(ss, LOW); //
  SPI.begin(); //
  digitalWrite(ss, LOW);
  digitalWrite(ss, HIGH);

void loop()
 ax_l = SPI.transfer(0);

 datax=(ax<<8) | ax_l;
 Serial.print("X Accel: ");
 Serial.println(datax, DEC);

Increase with serial port speed
decrease the SPI clock divider
reduce/delete the delays
