RIP Nicky Hayden

I'm sorry if this has already been posted but I just wanted to say how sad and tragic this is.
A truly great racer has gone way too soon and what a horrible irony that after years of riding the fastest bikes on the planet he lost his life as the result of a cycling accident. RIP Nicky.

Gone way too early. So ironic that he survived racing the fastest motorcycles on the planet, only to get mortally injured while riding a bicycle.

They say only the good die young, and Nicky was a good guy all around.

God Speed Nicky. May you rest in peace.

RIP to a legend, and someone who seemed like genuinely nice guy. As an avid cyclist and motorcycle rider, it kind blow me away that everyone (including my cyclist buddies) think motorcycles are nuts. Yet, when I get on my motorcycle, I'm wearing a full face helmet, armored jacket, padded gloves, and protective boots. On my bicycle, I'm wearing lycra, a little foam bonnet, and that's about it, even though I regularly hit speeds that are right there with a lot of my motorcycle travel. Anytime you are on two wheels, it is dangerous, and I'm thankful for every day I get to ride any of my two wheeled machines. A true loss. I'm sad...
