All of you who post about "proper" body position... well, Hopkins is a picture of perfection. Of course, not everyone can get into that position so be sure to limber up before trying it

An update on testing: Both Suzukis are on top with Hopkins leading the way with a 2:01:6 (from memory). It will be very interesting to see if Suzuki has been preparing longer for the switch and will have an advantage or if the rest are just sandbagging it and come '07 we'll see the same old story...
