Nicky Hayden will be on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno this evening. Hopefully Jay will ask him some interesting questions because he's such a fan of motorcycles himself. There's also supposed to be a replica of Nicky's bike so it should be a pretty cool segment. It's nice to see Nicky getting some exposure in the mainstream media after a great win at Laguna Seca :phatyo

The interview was actually better than I expected. I got worried Jay was just going to talk to them about growing up in Kentucky but the interview went on longer than I expected and they at least started talking about racing and some important things that have happened to each brother recently. All the footage was pretty cool, too. I was just surprised Jay didn't spend any time talking about Nicky's win at Laguna.

Best part of the interview was when Jay was busting Roger's balls about crashing a bicycle :lol That was some pretty gnarly rash, though

I thought Jay did a pretty good job, considering he had to deal with an audience that for the most part hasn't a clue when it comes to motorcycles or motorcycle racing.

That Roger Lee is a cocky shit isn't he? I also found Jay's ribbing Roger Lee about crashing his bicycle funny.

I think they said something really quick when Jay asked what series they were in... actually he said that Rodger and Tommy were in Superbike and he asked Nick what series he competed in to which he obv. replied MotoGP and they made some reference.

Goddamit! Why didn't they put them on first? I had to be in bed early and I didn't! :mad:

I don't think they spent much time on the MotoGP win because I'll bet they didn't get permission to use the footage. Anyone who knows MotoGP that they are anal about their race footage ( see upwards of a $30 membership for their website ).

Oh man I was so excited, sitting at a bar watching the interview on the big screen TV, and they showed that wreck that Tommy had a Laguna. I WAS RIGHT THERE!!! Literally standing against the fence at the corner he wrecked on, maybe 15-20 ft away from it! I was stoked cause I had told all my friends about it, but none of them have a clue about motorcycle racing so it was nice for them to be able to see what the hell I was talking about. :phatyo
