you must be talking about the second group where we usually place the less experienced riders, but you are more than welcome to join our first group and i promise you will not see 60 mph anywhere in a turn!

Nope, I'm talking about the group YOU ride in. was a handful of bikes, you, floyd, and some other guys (while back, when floyd was still on the r6). I'm usually off the streets by the time you guys are rolling out of sugar land anyway, so no thanks.

well on this video i dont even appear on it until the zx14 gets to the station, so how can you tell how fast I was going in the turn?

i know you are an early riser, so how about this? tell me the time you wanna ride on sunday and i will accommodate my schedule to yours, have your gopro ready and lets hit the road, u game?

watch the video closely, right around 2:45 you can see that colonel was aware of the faster rider behind, so he slows down and takes the inside of the turn riding close to the edge of the road making more space for the faster rider to go around him

no egos here man, tone your hating down i would say.... i posted the video because i think this guy is a good rider on that big bike and it wasnt about me at all, like i said i dont even appear on this video. On the other hand your track ego was fairly apparent once you mentioned "what level" and "starbucks"? Again this is not a track vs street thread!

like i said before the zx14 rider is at the track frequently so if you want i can introduce you to him so you can ask him 1) "what level"? 2) "does he goes to starbucks"? in person!

Yes the track is a safer environment because there are no cars, cops, etc but i have seen more people go down at a single track day than a year of riding on the streets.

I guess since there is a white line between the two bikes that counts as another lane?

good screenshot! as you can see colonel was already on the inside giving the passing rider plenty of room to go around him! From my perspective it was a clean, safe pass specially when colonel was already expecting the pass even before they both went into the turn.

Look at the other screen shot, even the rider in front was fully aware of the pass so he moved to the right as well, this shot would put the zx14 rider right in the edge of the other lane.

Throw in some stairs and some dirt and that would be a interesting video Gotta admit that was a pretty straight road.
Dont listen to the haters esp byrdman I see him posing at Starbucks every week lol.
