I agree and I don't do it (i ride mountain bikes on trails tho), but not as dangerous as racing motorcycles your whole life. That is why I used the word "relatively" when comparing his day job to this activity.

The latest news coming out of Italy on Nicky basically has him with no brain activity. Extremely sad at this point to think that the Kentucky Kid is probably not going to be with us any longer. That is not at all the outcome that people were pulling for and I'm sure the family and community is grief stricken over this latest turn.

Ride on Nicky. Ride on! You will be missed.

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

All you need to do is watch the Rossi interview where he says he spoke to the doctor. Rossi spoke of Nicky in past tense the rest of the interview. Like Rossi had been told by that doctor that Nicky wasn't going to make it. I suspect we'll hear sometime today that he's past. This makes me so damn mad because Nicky shouldn't have even been there, he should have been in France getting ready for the Gp race where he still belonged. He wasn't finished in Gp he was pushed out because he was American just exactly the way they done Spies. Nicky had not been on top level equipment since the year he won the title. Honda build the following years bike to fit Pedrosa which meant it didn't fit or work for Nicky. From there it was a steady tumble to the bottom of the equipment and finally out! Politics is in every aspect of human life. Seldom are the most deserving people rewarded the most because it's the most connected people that take praise for work they never done and can not do.

Yea thats what ive been reading too, sounds like no brain activity. You know what they tend to do next after that...

I have so much Nicky merch in my garage i bought at the various MotoGP's here at Indy. Wearing his signed #69 shirt today from his Ducati days (have another autographed one i dont wear). His autographed stuff was always the same price as all the other normal t-shirts and his Mom was usually sitting there selling them in the Indy heat - saw Earl sitting out there once too. Wont forget her rushing away from the merch table, i think it was the last MotoGP here, after Nicky wrecked, think it was in practice and he didnt get to race that day.
He gave me a camo 69 sticker when he showed up in downtown Indy right out of the blue for bikes on Meridian and was nice enough to take a pic with me - thought it was cool i met someone smaller than me for once - im about 5'9"/140. Probably put that sticker on the 10 soon, finally. LS1(member) had him autograph a helmet and he was as nice as a person could be who is getting swarmed by fans.

That day, just being with my crew LS1 and Travis and having our badass bikes on display downtown, meeting Nicky and Travis hooking me up comping my ticket for the race - it was really a super cool day in my life. Times like that are what makes life really special.

Edit - Im having the strangest feeling they're keeping Nicky alive long enough for family to get there basically.

Not that it matters any but i wish there was some kind of information on the accident, the driver or anything like that. Just would by interesting to know how it happened. Or maybe i missed that part somewhere along the line?

Strange there have been no details released about the driver or the other riders who were on the road with Nicky? Prognosis is not looking good for the Kentucky Kid. Cheered for Nicky racing around Laguna many times including the win in 2006 that ultimately led to the No.1 spot at the end of the championship.

After all the miles and risks of racing dirt and short circuit, only to be taken out on a bicycle by a fucktard in a cage. And the worst part is that Nicky is one of the good guys in racing. You just can't make this shit up.....

It's like Michael Schumacher all over again.

Dude probably went into hiding... I know I would. I'd be asking for police protection if it were my fault! Taking out one of the good guys of the racing world has got to be one of the worst feeling ever...

Damn this is sad news.
What's even sadder is how it all happened. He probably never thought in a million years a accident on a bicycle would take him out.
