Damn. if I wasn't at home tending to my wife who just had surgery I'd be there tomorrow morning to retrieve you bike. My truck is however at your disposal if needed. So glad you're ok.

I'm unable to ride for the short term and I'd be glad to send it to you as a loaner for the next several months if you're interested.
Let me know...
Very cool of you to offer that.

Tom, glad to see you are OK. I think everyone here is proud to have you part of our riding community. I wish I was able to help next week with your bike but work is getting in the way. I think you will have a small cavalry on Tuesday getting it out.

I am glad to see you are going to get a SPOT.............
