Remembering Nicky Through Selected YouTube Videos

With the passing of Nicky Hayden yesterday, we thought the following videos were worth a look.  In addition to the racing, you can get an idea of Nicky Hayden, the person, particularly in the Tonight Show episode with Jay Leno and all three Hayden brothers.

The TV episode Nicky hosts for Honda Pro Racing is also a fun look back, but be aware that the second half of that show focused on TT legend John McGuinness.

Have a look.

    Nicky Haydon was a talented rider who made it up through the ranks as a number one rider. His accomplishments are respected amongst his peers and admirers. Even with all the good riders that come and go, Nicky’s efforts to properly represent his country in the realm of international motorcycle racing stand’s out as the jewel in the crown of a princely motorcycle rider.

    He was a proper representative of the sport and had the attitude of a true sportsman.

    Seeing that S90 reminded me of how just about everyone I knew as a rider started out. Mine was a Trail 90, two friends had S90’s and one had an SL70 Scrambler. What wonderful years those were. The camaraderie we had riding and wrenching on our bikes was second to none.

    re: “be aware that the second half of that show focused on TT legend John McGuinness.”

    no worries, he speaks on the loss of Jeffries and more recently Shoesmith. who better than McPint (currently convalescing from his wreck at the 200 and due to miss this years TT in a weeks time) to give perspective regarding tragedy/loss in the context of motorsport.

    forget racing, it’s a reminder our participation in LIFE ITSELF is what’s “bitter-sweet”.
