Why do you think Hopper went green?

What do you guys/gals think was the main reason John Hopkins signed with Kawasaki?

If it is going to be Hopper and that new guy I do not have any reason to not think we will get some podium finishes.

I think its because there is a big push coming from Kawasaki in motorcycling in general.

yeah looks that way for sure. Of course it has to do with money as well but I think Kawi is moving in the right direction especially in MotoGP.

Didn't realize he made this move. Great news. He's a solid rider and has been getting better as well. I have missed the last few races I need to catch up on but he looks better than last year in my opinion.
