Nicky on the 101. A Beautiful Gesture


The view from North 101. Wolf J Flywheel

A familiar face was seen on a billboard on the side of California 101 yesterday.

Just before the exit for the San Jose airport a billboard displayed an image of Nicky Hayden’s face and his motorcycle.

It is as yet unknown who did this beautiful gesture–there was nothing else displayed on the sign–but it’s rumored that Laguna Seca Raceway did it.

Nick’s face is on billboards on both sides of the 101. An estimated 250-300,000 people per day ride or drive past the billboards.
