That bike looks like a goodun' but for me I reckon the finishing order of the first race will be

Tommy Hill
Josh Brookes

(Kiyo only does what's necessary early in the season, though he is fast around Brands)

it looks like a fisher-price 'my first bike'

you wouldnt mix it up with any of the others as it is in a league of its own (looks wise), far below the rest of the paddock.

that said, its going to be a strong package, especially with Laverty and Hill onboard.

obviously you wouldnt turn down the sponsorship money on the basis of their corporate colours, but looks like it has been designed by a colourblind 3 year-old

Hummmm, paint scheme is not great on first impression, the swan hondas from last year looked better. Given Hoppers performance in the GP he belongs back there, not running round British tracks. Will cause controversy I know, but who else from the BSB grid could get on a GP bike after years off, float around the top ten area, and run a strong race only fading from arm pump..... certainly none of the 'top' riders from this years crop....

He is lucky, like ever other competitor to be on the BSB Grid, the snobbery of GP racing will be given no quater on the the british tracks.

unless he is miles ahead at every round I think you comments are not deserved as repsect should be given to the rest of the grid.

I wonder how hopkins would get on at the tt!!

What has the TT got to do with anything?
Does it matter how Hopkins would get on there? I thought this was short ciruit racing?

If it's real road racing that floats your boat I'd recommend comparing Hopkins with Guy Martin next week, or even John McGuiness if he's doing STK1000 again.

Might as well compare Stefan Everts with Valentino Rossi.
As for being lucky to be on the grid, I think you're confusing the former GP podium scorer with someone else...
