F*** Julian Ryder

Check out his "eulogy" for Nicky over at superbikeplanet...

Nicky was unfailingly polite and professional no matter what, he was to us Europeans a fine example of what we took to be the best expression of true American values, and believe me we need reminding of them right now.

He takes the opportunity to take a snipe at U.S. politics while talking about Nicky which could not be more disgusting.  Doesn't matter where you are politically, this should be offensive to you.  Let him know. 

RIP Nicky Hayden

All he mentioned was that he was a very respected American, and that he was a great face for our nation. Maybe I read it wrong but I didn't feel his comments were that out of touch. His stories seemed genuine and painted a picture of a polite, humble, and talented rider.

Americans need thicker skin. That should not 'trigger' you.

I think he's saying they're in need  to remember Nicky as the champion and gentleman he was ...
it just sounds like everyone  is  mourning and grasping at anything they can hold on to !!

The man was saying Europeans in Europe don't like America right now (probably Trump related) and Nicky Hayden was a welcome face to a society they seem to loathe.  That's probably the Liberal side of Europe talking.  You have to understand that Europeans are deeply passionate about their politics and are mostly liberal and socialistic to a fault, even to their own detriment.  I got the slight from the writer but I'm not offended because I expect that from Europeans.  I really don't care what they (or anybody else) think of America and American politics.  We already have enough problems with the State of California to worry about other people around the world!

The statement is pretty neutral it could be a call to positive american values or as a slight on american values as practiced today. Interesting you take it negatively what values do you feel embarrassed or guilty about?

We Americans have always had a bad reputation as being loud and obnoxious long before the current administration took office.  What rock have you been living under?

I like it, and I agree. More people should represent America like Nicky did.

I'm not sure how you could be offended by that. There are a lot of light hearted jabs at European countries on American television and I bet you laugh at them. I read it as Nicky was a great representative of America.

Wow. You really had to work hard to be that offended by a simple remark. i read completely over it. There is a stereo type in foreign countries of "the ugly American",Nicky was and will be remembered as the very opposite of that. Ben Spies was very humble and likable too.
As for Trump, we teach our kids to behave better.
