I think Nicky Hayden is going to struggle when he gets to Moto GP. I don't believe he has the smoothness that is required to ride those bikes. When you watch him race he definitely has big balls, but he is just way too agressive. The Moto GP bikes are like an F1 car, you have to be really smooth. For that matter any racing machine that is over-powered and light-weight requires real smoothness. Colin Edwards will most likely have more sucess than Hayden. Look how Noriuki Haga struggled on GP bikes. Everyone thinks you have to be a nutjob to go fast on a bike but smoothness rules. I've seen Matt Zurbuchen from North Van. race and he is really smooth. That's how with just a few years experience he has done so well. You don't earn a number one plate by being a wild man. Congrats Matt!
