Very tragic to hear! I've always been a fan of the Kentucky Kid from his AMA days. I have his Nicky V Arai lid

Rest in Peace #69

RIP. Nicky grew up about 30 mins from me in Kentucky. His whole family is very classy and are very humble. It's really hit this community hard. He'll be missed.

Man this sucks. At least he was doing what he loved. Riding with the wind.

His life was cut short while he was cycling with a group by a driver who wasn't paying attention.

I've got an arms reach of meeting him at Laguna Seca and everything he did, he did with humility. He represented everything America and racing around the world, he always shown the stars and stripes. Very grounded yet passionate for racing.

Rest in Peace Nicky Hayden

Security cameras actually showed Hayden run a stop sign. Driver was not at fault. Tragic none the less. R.I.P !

Tough to see anyone pass away
Following his racing from AMA to the World side was great
His interviews were straight up and honest

I just remember one interview where he said they made me "feel like a little girl" and they were referencing the speed they were entering in some corner and how the other riders were taking it
Just honest and funny guy
RIP mang
Ride with your fellow brothers who are there with you now
