I Ride: BMW, Honda, and another Honda
I normally wouldn't repeat myself in another thread, but this will help with my Nicky catharsis:

I feel like I lost a riding buddy. It's odd, because I know other famous riders, much better. I guess having watched his entire career makes him feel closer. History has already shown that he should have had a better ride at Honda, and that he was not Ducati's weak spot. I think I even under estimated him at Ducati.

Something different to consider:
What corner should be named after him? Anywhere in the world - and any corner is okay. Lorenzo already has a damn corner, even before Rossi, for Jerez sake.

I Ride: Ducati
I saw Nicky at WSBK in Laguna before he went to MotoGP.

He was a great rider, one of the good guys, and had a passion for riding that showed.

Very sad to hear this news.

Local Newcastle Australia FM radio station ...... usually they talk about footy and other sports ....... never/extremely rarely moto racing ( even though they cover Kurri the centre of flat track in Aus....... devoted the whole minute of sports covet to just Nicky Hayden. Was nicely done ..... began with Nick Harris's anouncement when Hayden won the 2006 WC.

What a nightmare. I'm not a particular religious man, but no one deserves a spot in heaven more than Nicky. His legacy will go well beyond motorbikes. Wonderful, wonderful human being. The epitome of what I respect in a human being. Heart-breaking. Condolences to Jackie and the Hayden family.

RIP Champ. You will NEVER be forgotten

Quite extensive coverage on ABC news radio, with epitaphs from Stoner, Mark Webber and Dani Pedrosa.

Even the regional stations out here were mentioning it up until an hour or two ago.

The loss is being felt extremely widely which goes to show that Nicky is held in extremely high regard in so many areas

I Ride: N/A - Grew up around Ducati's
When I was at the paddock in Phillip Island last year, I saw him run past and kicking myself at the time for not asking for a photo as he seemed like such a nice likeable guy.

What sad news to wake up to, I really feel for his family. RIP Nicky
