I have a lot of respect for Nicky, for the reasons mentioned above.

My wife was a big NH fan back in the Superbike days when he'd still sneak in a dirt track or three in a season. We were at the flat track national in Harrington, DE one year, walking the pits post-race. I had recently attended American Supercamp and was chatting with Chris Carr in the pits. Chris' wife had a puppy with her and my wife was playing with the puppy with her back to Chris and I. Nicky walked up, politely waited for a lull in conversation and began talking business with Chris. I excused myself and we walked along. I asked my wife what she thought of being up close and personal with Nicky... she hadn't even noticed as she was so wrapped up in the puppy.
