Did anyone see the Hayden brothers on Leno last night? I just heard about this morning and wanted to see if anyone caught it.

I caught it...Leno used the opportunity to showcase Motogp and road racing in general to the American public.  They had some footage of crashes and the bikes going down various straights at full throttle.  The boys held their own with Leno...His next guest should be King Kenny R!

I have a great amount of appreciation and respect for Jay Leno and his auto and motorcycle sense. Not only is his collection massive and tasteful, but he actually rides/drives of the pieces in his collection. I'm glad he is taking strides to further real motorsports in the US (I liken NASCAR to pro wrestling).

Indeed, Leno is the man when it comes to cool cars and bikes, and I like that his taste is different. You never see him saying, "This is my Escalade with 25's and 16 Video screens!"

It was a good piece however I was disapointed that they didn't talk more about Nicky's win at Laguna.  They talked a lot about Rog and Tommy but didn't get into much about Nicky at all.  No MotoGP clips....I wonder if Dorna didn't authorize anything to be used or talked about?  they could have had some nice onboard footage with Nicky.

Leno did a great job though

It was great seeing my homeboys on Leno!!!!! Nicky saying "No, I'm just getting carried away" sounded just like home!!! He even commented on Roger's bicycle crash and showed a picture of his road rash. He showed Tommy's crash at Laguna Seca. Although, I didn't know he broke his hand in that wreck. I wondered why he was dragging butt the second race.....No Nicky racing footage, but he did have a big picture of Nicky in a corner with Rossi behind him hanging on stage.
