Just terrible.

I hope the family does something public for his services. I'd like to ride down and participate in any way I can. MotoGP made a pretty big impact on me when I first got into motorcycling and Hayden was a part of that in a big way.

Yeah, I'd like to have a chance to show my respects as well. I'm sure there are a lot of people that feel that way.

Nicky Hayden did more to promote the sport of motorcycling in America than any other single individual in the last 20 years. An absolute class act. I agree with all of you, let's ride to the OWB and pay our respects.

someone posted this on facebook,

They want all bikes down there for the funeral at 1030am CT Monday. There are some of us meeting at the 71/75 rest stop south of Mt Zion Rd. At 7am, kickstands up at 8am to head down, all bikes will leed the funeral persesion from the curch to Nicky's final resting place at noon central time Monday

We will not be at the actual service. The actual service is only for family and close family friends


I cannot confirm if this is real or a hoax. the poster has not responded to the post in several hours.

Believe it's real. It is posted on Mike McFadden's FB page. What's a little odd is that time has changed in the last few hours and is not consistent within his post. Originally was supposed to roll out at 12 PM CDT, but the latest now says 1 PM CDT. Here's the post:

The Motorcycle procession for Nicky Hayden will take place Monday, 5/29/2017. 12:00 pm

Riders will need to be at the 501 West 4th. St. Fisher Auto Parts ( Formally Gipe Automotive ) parking lots at 10:30. We are expecting a lot of riders. So this will give us time to get organized.

Dirtbikes, Flat Trackers, and Racebikes will not be allowed to follow the procession. We ask you to still show up and line the streets. We will line you up on West 4th Street.

What about the Kids: Parents that wish to take part in the memorial we would love to see the kids decked out in their gear holding their helmets next to their rides or just standing there. We will line them down the side of West 4th.St.

Those of you who do not ride we would also love to have your support along West 4th St. And Frederica St. 11:00 would give everyone time to find parking places.

The riders will escort Nicky to his final resting place and once services have completed riders will be released. I have been asked to line Locust St. on both sides of the street. Once we fill that area we will then coral everyone else at the Fisher Auto parts lots.

Lets make this one last "Grip it and Rip it" moment for one of the Motorcycling Worlds best Ambassadors.

Sincerely,
Mike McFadden
