Gary Nixon is one of the racing icons from the sixties and seventies that I
really look up to as a rider. He was a tough dude. He could be injured,
battered, broken, it didn’t matter. He raced anyway, and he won. He was just a
little guy, but he was famous for strolling up to the starting line and saying
things like ”So, which one of you sorry s.o.b.’s is coming in second? Gary Nixon
was a two time AMA Grand National Champion, which meant that you rode at a
championship level at five different types of motorcycle racing, on multiple
surfaces. You didn’t specialize in just one event the way you do now. The old-schoolers
could do everything. Gary Nixon passed away in August of two thousand and eleven
at a cantankerous seventy years of age. This helmet graphic was created in his
honor. Let’s take a closer look.
