Fark there is some refreshing honest commentary in that quoted article

Good to see and will be missed from the paddock, just hope that WSBK is kind to him and he gets the bike he deserves

There was a picture I remember back in the day where he hugs his older brother in Parc ferme and they start crying, that one actually got me emotional.

Nicky achieved the ultimate goal and conducted his career in honor. That's pretty much all you can want and hope for in an athlete and human being.

I Ride: the inevitable waves of change
And he did so while only being on a factory ride for a mere decade. He had a bike exclusively tailored around him in 07. What he do with that?

He chose the paycheck over the competitiveness of the ride. He can't fool me into thinking otherwise. No reason to take that Honda sbk ride.

I hope (!) I'll eat my words and he shines on the blade but I won't hold my breath

'Round these part the common wisdom was that the 2007 bike was actually designed around Pedrosa. I don't recall if Nicky ever said so to the press - but it was repeated often that he'd found the 2007 bike way too small for him. I recall Honda trying many tricks to make it ergonomically compatible for someone of Nicky's size.

Hayden posted on Twitter he will get his first ride on a superbike in 12 years tomorrow. That has to be an odd day/ride for him.

I can't remember what year it was when you came here in your original incarnation.

Sorry Nicky, it's bad news I'm afraid....there's likely to be less fans at WSBK so that means it will be even easier for the Mexican stalker to get you to sign boom boxes, stand for photos where you both show off matching Tissot watches, harass you in general.....

I wont miss him riding a piece of shit Honda Open class bike, that's for sure. I watch every superbike race anyway. So I'm glad he switched & look forward to watching him at the front at the opening race at Philip Island in February.
