Thanks for the update Greg! I'm sure we are all relieved to hear Guy's doing well. I'm also sure he will get more visitors than he knows what to do with once he gets home. Right now he needs lots of rest.

Anyone want any motorcycle magazines from about 2007 to 2010?
Mostly Cycle World and Motorcyclist, but also a year of Sport rider and a bunch of random ones. I was going to throw them out but if anyone is interested you can have them if you pick them up in Mechanicsville.


Also have a whole bunch of Guitar World magazines from about 1998 to 2004, in case anyone is interested in that.


Please PM or text 703-860-8755

Update on Guy

I just spoke with Betty. She actually went to her school today because Guy is doing very well. So well she said they were talking about moving him out of ICU later today. I guess that means he will be able to have visitors, since most ICUs restrict access to family only.

I hope some of you guys will go visit him. He is in Johnston Willis, but Greg could give you better information. I'm about ready to leave town so I won't be able to visit him.

Heal fast Guy! Dirtdoctor, thanks for visiting him!
