Hayden smiles less and less in photos as the year progresses with his new team. Hes normally a smilin' kinda guy. I hope the former champ gets support from the motherland! After all, he helped build the brand in the states and abroad...

Go nicky!!

Nicky is always a great interview. He doesn't complain. He just tells it like it is and gives credit when it's due like with Espargaro.

I also like how he and other riders have not bee afraid to tell some of the fans that they are wrong and should not be telling the actual riders how to train when they have no clue what it takes.

Exactly, it's just like friends or family that tell you that you're crazy for riding a motorcycle - when they've never ridden a day in their lives...

You never hear a rider or someone who has been there and really knows what it takes to go fast say you shouldn't do it. Of course it's easy for some fans to think but they don't know what it takes to go fast, the feeling you need and the muscles - Nicky Hayden


God, that's the most critical thing I think I have ever heard him say to/about the fans. If he ever read the postings of the some of the extremely knowledgeable and experienced armchair racers on this forum...he might even say something impolite!!!

Best guy in racing...I will lament the day he retires. I hope he gets a good bike soon.

I sometimes wander if any of the racers read some of the stuff us fans write on these forums.

I don't think anybody would hold it against Nicky if he walked away with his championship, moved on to a competitive ride in WSBK and went on to enjoy victories and maybe a championship. He's a good racer who won't get a chance at a winning machine in GP again. I like NH . I would love to see him racing for wins and podiums again and I'm positive with a good ride he could do it in WSBK. I guess if Honda decides to inject this bike with a leased prototype engine he might have a chance. But as of now it sounds like the bike is too low on power. Not needing much Wheelie Control? On a GP bike?? I hear the factory bikes lift in 6th gear sometimes.
