Nicky was a true all-rounder, excelling not only in the premiere class to take the 2006 world title from Valentino Rossi but also in his early years as an AMA Pro flat Track racer and as a production bike rider both in the AMA Superbike series and more recently in World Superbikes for the Red Bull Honda team.
More than a racer, though, he was also loved by the paddock and his fellow competitors. One of the few people that no one would ever have a bad word to say about, the American was rare in having taken a championship without ever made an enemy in MotoGP – something acknowledged in the huge outpouring of grief and comfort from riders, teams, media and organisers since the news first broke of his crash yesterday afternoon.

Riding a bike is among the most dangerous things thing one can do
nowadaze. Cages routinely veer toward the oncoming lane whilst the operators
browse the internet. Just sit on your front lawn and watch.. You'll see.
Another thing to be watchful for are the new 4 way stop rules for phone operators.
They don't stop anymore, and almost never use directionals, a deadly combination for walking with your dog. You cannot begin crossing a street until all cages are clear of sight.
I see this everywhere. We are doomed as a race.
