Followed Nicky's career since he was in AMA Superstock. Whenever he rode, he gave his all. Now he has given his all and Moto GP has given it's all to Nicky. Time to go, Nicky.

Honda got caught with their pants down with this bike... Rules constantly being changed and adapted for ducatis benefit... Now Ducati are still rubbish and next year this bike will be a lot better... It beats the factory ducatis every now and again even now.... Would love to buy one for trackdays :)

Whatever might lie ahead in Nicky's career, we should be grateful to him for what he achieved in motoGP, during all these years.
We shouldn't forget that he was the first one to interrupt Rossi's, already long lasting, winning gallop. And, above all, don't ignore that he is an American !
Pay attention, especially, to the last sentence, because he might well be the last GP champ, from the land of Uncle Sam, for some years to come !
With a view to see him back soon, in the saddle, I wish him :
- Good luck, Nicky son !

Nick, your fans want to watch you with a chance of winning, you no longer have a chance in MotoGP. Have you thought about coming stateside with the help of you brother Tommy, your Dad, Honda and maybe even ducati and other manufactures and promote a road racing series here in the U.S. to bring up the next generation of Americans. You and many great riders had the benefit of that. What we have now is barely a shadow of what AMA racing used to be.

would love to see the nicky of old but i would suspect injuries and age may be playing a part in his decline. most people don't understand these guys race from a very young age and your body can only take so much. on the other hand he's achieved more in his career than alot of other guys on the grid. so nicky gets a pass in my book.

"Pay attention especially to the last sentence, because he might well be the last GP champ, from the land of Uncle Sam, for some years to come !"

Probably right. These are no longer machines made for men with big b@lls and brave right hands. The two-wheeled spanish jockey super computers are here, and here to stay. Less weight, more laptops... that's the winning combo.
