To say Hopper is anything other than a class act on a bike - at least when he's not run himself ragged off it anyway - is pretty much an indicator of how much you haven't really understood what's going on. BUT Even tho he might actually be the best rider there... Still doesn't mean he's going to wipe the board in BSB. Can't help remembering the problems Kiyo had a couple of seasons ago when HRC couldn't get it into their obstinate heads that favourite son or not trying to ride two differently set up bikes (WSB and Suzuka in that case) can cause a rider a LOT of difficulty. Sh1t that should become instinctive has to be done under conscious control of you risk running the wrong reflex - that's tiring and costs time. Hope I'm being too pessimistic. We'll see.
