    Unhappy Former MotoGP champion, Nicky Hayden passes away...

    Nicky Hayden was struck by a car on a road in Italy last week while cycling and training, he was rushed to the hospital and was put on a medically induced coma to see if the brain swelling would come down enough so they could attempt to operate and evaluate his injuries further but unfortunately he has succumbed to his injuries and has passed away. Racing and 2 wheel communities all over the world are at a loss and our deepest condolences and thoughts are with the Hayden family at this very difficult time. One stand up dude and just great human being that has been taken from us way too soon, you will be missed Kentucky kid #69 #Raceinpeace

    I rarely think of motorcycles without a little yearning. They are about moving, and humans, I think, yearn to move its in our cells, in our desires. We quiet our babies with cyclic movement, and we quiet ourselves by going.

    Requiescat in pace Nicky..

    Been following this story all weekend...
    ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ

    "So live your life so the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their views, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
    "

    Damn, I had to look up requiescat, I thought you misspelled something. Truly sad and more than a little ironic that he died from riding a bicycle and not his motogp bike. He is missed by so many.

    Sad, sad day... By far the most impressionable rider to me.

    I had the opportunity to sit and chat with his dad, Earl, for over an hour at COTA in 2015. Ive got a collection of 9 of Nickys helmets, love every single one of them.

    R.I.P.
