Nicky Hayden

Just heard Nicky Hayden was in a very serious bicycle accident in Italy. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

Very sad news indeed. Nicky is one of the true 'good guys' in professional sports.

From the reports I've been reading the injuries are really bad, beyond career ending kind of bad. I'm hoping some of that is just journalistic exaggeration and that his physical fitness gives him a better chance than most of us for pulling through this to live a long and healthy life.

This is the best motorcycle commercial......Nicky Hayden promoting the brand new GL1800 back in 2001 for Honda.
Hope he heals up quickly.

btw - Lets move this thread back to the general forum.....it's worthy IMHO.

MAN! For whatever else is said about the GL1800 GW, it really was/is a BAAAADDDD motorbike. Unlike brands that thump their chests and think noise deserves respect, this bike let its' performance and handling do the talking. History will have a special place for it.

Love the air he gets under the front tire at the 0:50 mark.

There is some speculation the news of his death is not true. I don't like fake news any more than what's his name, so I feel compelled to let y'all know there is still nothing in the mainstream news about him passing away.

So true- I know more guys seriously hurt on their bicycles than motorcycles. Very sad news, I hope he survives to race again.
