I don't see it happening unless Hopkins starts to podium and win on it. And starts to do it soon.... Rossi still wants to win races and titles, and Kawasaki hasn't shown that it is capable of doing that.

I think he'll resign with Yamaha. And probably switch back to Michelin's after the Troll or Lorenzo win the title.... Though we shall see what happens when they go to tracks that are more friendly to the Bridgestone tires...

I think the Kawasaki MotoGP bike is showing potential and I know that Rossi made some casual comment about the Kawi at the end of last season. Something to the effect that it look like it had good speed. And Team Kawasaki's denial response actually made me think that they have at least had casual conversation with Rossi. At this point it is little more than wishfull thinking, however.

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.

We have to remember what Rossi did for Yamaha when he switched from Honda. Yamaha was struggling and when Rossi made the switch he brought the M1 to front of the pack. Maybe he is looking for another challenge?

Man......That would be nice. First thing I'd do is build a Rossi Replica Bike.

Kawi is gonna do great with Hoppers but if Rossi joins the team that would be the greatest.

Hopkins looked great on Sunday. I think he may have finished stronger with a different tire choice.

yes indeed he did! his groin injury is healing so he can ride instead of circulating on it now.

True.

But then again, he may have finished farther back if two of the people in front of him didn't crash....

3 weeks I think until the next race. Hopefully he'll be nearly 100% by then.

Anthony West by the way is looking like a waste of a seat.....
