MotoGP boot him ??
Kawi dropped him when they tried to pull out of motogp.
It's good to see him riding again, I think he'll do pretty well say regular top 5 guy perhaps? He's another top rider who brings even more respectability to already deep talent pool in wsbk. Apparently the Stiggy team dropped Rolfo pretty quickly.. http://www.crash.net/World+Superbike...olfo_exit.html

Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

Hopkins barely registered on my personal interest radar while in MotoGP. He seemed to be outclassed every time he raced.
Now that he's in WSBK, maybe he'll be able to do a bit better.

Sparring speed is a matter of simple physics:
The height of your flight is inversely proportionate to the mass of your ass.
I noticed Hopkins and cheered for him while he helped Suzuki present a reasonable GP ride. He started with a nothing bike and I believe assisted immensely in bring that bike to where it is today. That team has come a long way and I am glad he was there for that.
I wish him well in WSBK and am excited to have another fast rider in that paddock.
You maroon! He was on a SUZUKI for all but the last of his MotoGP career.
How's the gixxer?

Red Bull Yamaha ring a bell?

most of his GP career was with Suzuki. he brought the bike a long way from where it started. he'll do well in WSB.
That that doesn't kill us forces us to live with a busted up bike!!
