His dad has some input on the details.

Who knows what's actually true, but what matters is that it happened. I don't think he's going to make it. I sure hope I'm wrong.

Is anyone going to run in his place?
Will they just have his bike there?
I'm sure there will be tribute stuff in every series he raced in.

I was just about to post that article. Makes you wonder about the facts and info. I'm pulling for him. I hope there's some concrete information that comes out soon. I read in an Italian article today that doctors did confirm brain activity still, but again, who knows...

I never met him or saw Nicky race, but damn, I've taken a lot away from his attitude, his work ethic, and his humbleness. This really gets to me.

I don't know if anyone saw Rossi's comments regarding Hayden. But...

"The most beautiful moment I have about Nicky is when he shakes my hand after an unpleasant race at Valencia 2015. For him, the race was a goodbye to MotoGP, while I lost the world title.

"His supportive gaze from his helmet was one of the few positive moments I had that day.

"Forza Nicky, we're all with you."

The tributes are all there, they talked about it in MotoGP, even my KODI motor replays add-on has a Nicky Tribute.

His team hasn't really said anything regarding Nicky yet, let alone a plan for that bike. It's very odd the closest sources have not made any sort of statement yet. Earl's article is the closest thing we've heard yet. Roger is still stateside testing or something I read.

Even Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be paying a tribute
