1. I hope Nicky the best of luck, and I would love to see him ride in WSBK, and if he does, i'll probably quit watching motogp in favor of WSBK. I think he still has alot of talent, and can be a competitive player in WSBK, I don't think he will sweep like Spies did, but he should be a lot more happy with his results in WSBK than GP

2. I hope this is not a sign for Cal to be wearing red next year. He is so so close to taking a win on the Tech3 Yam. But it seems he would rather see red leathers and green in his pocket than gold on his trophy wall.

Im a Ducati fan and dont ask me why, but for Hayden to be leaving This racing team with such inner struggle may be a blessing for him, they have a reluctance to change their ways no matter how erroneous their way are, i wish him well and hope hes given some consideration with Tech 3, Gressini, LCR, Aspar or even Suzuki, Motogp needs him for promotional purposes and i hope hes picked up by one of the above mentioned teams and sticks it to Ducati and show them how wrong and flawed they are.

I watched Nicky come up through the ranks in AMA. I met him once at Daytona. I was extremely happy to see him go to Moto GP. Winning the World championship was icing on the cake. Seeing him struggle with the Ducati has been painful. Unless he can get a ride with Honda or Yamaha, I hope he leaves Moto GP. I know he would like to accomplish more in the top series, but I'm afraid it's just not in the cards.

Very few motorcycle riders can lay claim to an AMA Supersport championship, an AMA Superbike championship and a Moto GP championship. I'm certain he has more money than he ever dreamed of having. He loves flat tracking. It would not surprise me to see him come back to the U.S. and spin it up in the dirt once again. Whatever he choose to do, I wish him the best of luck.

Damn... After so may years, it's hard when a long timer leaves...

If Cal gets it, He'd want to show 'em all what he's made of, and that bloke will push real hard.. Maybe even a new Stoner perhaps.

Removed poster attack.
Nicky Hayden was a world champion. Who holds the record for winning the WC with consistency not race wins. He is and its no detriment to him another Colin Edwards. Not quite there but nearly other than one lucky season.
Leaving the ducati or dooookateee as he calls it is no bad thing. Go break a decent record be the first to win some titles that bikers go, now there's a record and wsb is a good cv for retirement.....
