Our well wishes, hopes, and prayers go out to you Greg from all of us here at the Rally at the IH. The unfortunate mishap that had your name on it today is something that we never want to see happen. You were the topic of concern of all the XSives today. Many questions were asked tonight at the awards meeting about how you are doing.

Brent and some others are coming to Asheville tomorrow to see you. They will be there for you. (plus they want to see the pretty nurses)

We would much rather see you on an XS1100 than inside a helicopter.

Anything that you need, let us know, let us help. We want to help.

We will settle for nothing less than a good report on how you are doing!

Go heal!

Thanks to all for EVERYTHING. I'm doing well.

A guy couldn't ask for a better group to hang with.

I have a busted rib or 2 and a little problem with my left lung but not real serious.

Gotta go, Scott is here.

Greg,

Not sure what happened to you, but sounds like an incident that caused the shiney side not be up. I know from experience the pain of those ribs. The best solution I found was Lidocaine patches you can put over the broken ribs, numbs the area and decreases the pain by a bunch!

Hope you get better soon, and hope the bike is not totaled.

To anyone there at the lodge.

I don't know where my black mesh jacket ended up. It's got my brand new camera in the right side pocket. Can y'all help me track it down
