Finally got to watch the Qatar race this afternoon and saw Hopkins on the side of the track kicking the snot out of his Suzuki. Has anybody noticed that he does this every time he has a mechanical? He usually just beats on the tank, but this time he kicked the bike two or three times. Rumor has it that Honda would not let Biaggi ride one of their bikes because of the way he complained. Imagine how long Hopkins would last there. Quite a different scene when compared to Rossi making out with his Yamaha after most races. I'll bet the Japanese corporate people love Hopkins' antics.
