It may take him and the team to get it sorted by mid season.

Hope so. Never really a big fan, but you always gotta pull for the home team.

Always been a NH fan since his AMA days as he's always been approachable, friendly. I don't care what color the seat is he rides for I root for him due to the person he is.

just posting the "news".

Don't hate the guy, was just a Bostrom Bros fan more so than a Hayden Bros fan. I have plenty of respect for him, and his bros. Great talent and enormous passion for the sport. He's always been a class act, even when he's had a legit reason not to be.

I remember seeing him race at a small dirt oval in Wisconsin back around the late '90s - early '00s. Road America use to give a free ticket to the Saturday night dirt oval when you bought a weekend pass to the AMA races. Back then Nicky was allowed to run dirt during an AMA weekend.

I too enjoyed the Boz bros as well. Met Ben @ a local honda shop during his rein.

Eric Bostrom (#32) was my hero. He could ride that bored out, 800cc ZX-7RR like no one's business and went up against the liter bikes after the switch. Guy was awesome to watch and a nice guy as well. I thought he was the more talented of the two and was sorry to see him get out of the sport. I always thought Nicky was a bit over rated myself. He got a lucky break moving out of the AMA days imo. It's good to see an American back in the WSBK series, but I think he's still just riding out his retirement. I don't expect him to be a factor in the top 10 spots of any of the races.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
