I would go so far to say that Kawi suck also in WSB, and if it wasn't for Jamie Hacking in AMA, Kawi would have sucked there too..I'm still going green though.it may be his preferred brand according to the photos but Kawi sucks balls right now in moto gp so i don't think it would be a smart decision career wise
I hate to say it, but why would a solid rider who consistently places in the top 5 even consider coming over to green ? Hopkins made the move, and I suspect is now regretting it - the continual mechanical breakdowns and lack of any meaningful headway with set-up must be frustrating the hell out of him !
Don't get me wrong - I'm an avid Kawi fan for 30 years. I just don't think Kawi have a bike that's anywhere near competitive with the top boys - in MotoGP or WSB. Face it, a top 10 finish is the best we can expect in either class for 2008 and probably 2009.
And you think Edwards would be silly enough to leave a top team for green ?? I'd bet my bike he wouldn't !
