Hey Dr. Greg,

Somehow I missed this when you were writing it, but at least this way I got to read it all in one sitting.

Also the "length" of the bike (I'll see what that's like when riding). The real test is turning it around in my garage...if I feel my ride test is noteworthy enough I'll post my opinions in this thread (if anybody's interested).
I'd like to hear your thoughts about the Explorer.
