Nicky Hayden and his signature smile were able to rest a few weeks during the 2015/2016 off season at his home in Owensboro.

Awful things happen, all over the world, to anyone. And it’s a terrible shame for something so awful to have happened to one so loved as Nicky Hayden, exactly 1 year ago today.

Nicky had his cycling accident 1 year ago today. Ride on Kentucky Kid!

Determination

Nicky Hayden, nicknamed “The Kentucky Kid”, 2006 Valencian Community Grand Prix, Honda RC211V 990cc four-stroke V5, 150kg motorcycle with a 250bhp power output

Finished 3rd and won the 2006 MotoGP World Championship. The RC211V was retired after this race when rules dictated a switch to 800cc for the next season.

Love the way the late Nicky Hayden positioned his 2006 MotoGP World Championship winning bike on the staircase in his house. Love the deflated front tire 🙂

Miss you

Thanks for a lot of smile.
