Wait, do we still do that?

Anyway, I actually sat though the two-hour show with the MTV-targeted advertisements (including Buell 1125 ads!). It was not riveting, but better than the crap on the other channels.

The show left me with the impression that he's a simple bumpkin from Owensboro, Kentucky with not a lot going for him except he is rather fast on a motorsikkle. And, it turns out he produced the show!

By the way- if you are going to watch it, they mention Owensboro so often, you can make a drinking game out of the show.

It was better than I thought it was going to be. Nicky is a good ambassidor for the sport; a kid proud to be from the 'O.W.B' and rightly so, looks like he has a very cool and close community of family and friends which is truly a priceless thing and well represented. He's no bumpkin, just seems an obvious product of his environment and sounds like it, also seems not to let his heightened status get to his head which I certainly admire him for. I'm a Rossi fan at heart but respect Nicky as a decent young man with a good head on his shoulders. Again, I'm hard pressed to think of a better ambassidor (english speaking)for the sport.
