yes, they were expecting him because they were fully aware of their surroundings as they should be. that is NOT a safe clean pass. you dont pass people in a curve, let alone in their own lane. they were moving out of his way to avoid getting hit or run off. props to colonel for hiving his bike under control on such a small shoulder with a rider on the back like that and anticipating danger coming up.

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?
You're missing my point entirely. I will continue to keep away from your group, and you will continue riding the street like a total hat

Also I know how fast you were going because you always make it a point to tell EVERYONE and anyone who will listen to you how fast you go through those turns

you can assume whatever you want as to how we ride but if you give it a try it might change your mind, i normally just "cruise" from A to B, once we get to B then the first group picks up the pace and the rest of the group just do it at their own pace. About the speed, i dont believe we have met, so the possibilities of me telling you how fast i go is none!

if you go back and read the 110 was just an estimate on how fast the ZX14 was riding..... i was in the first group so it is pretty hard to judge his speed but from what i remember at times that i do follow him he seems to hit those turns at that speed.

None of what I said has been based on assumption, all fact. First hand experience. We have met several times, not that it matters as I don't really care much for you or your attitude towards things in general, and you mention all of these aforementioned things on an almost regular basis right here on the forums.

last time i asked Jimmy he mentioned in the 140's

last time i asked Carlos he said in the neighborhood of 130+ riding 2up

but whats the point of second guessing? all you have to do is come out and see it for yourself, i will follow you a few runs and then you try to follow me a few runs

for the record, it's not a straight only road. With the exception of a couple of turns in that stretch, most turns of curvatures somewhere between the carousel and the 3rd turn (right hand) after the launch, at msrh. Just for comparison

nobody got run off the road colonel saw the pass coming so he moved to the right ahead of time. About passing people on one wheel.... we are so used to it by now that i do not see the danger of it at all.... same deal with passing in turns, we see a fair share of it in the front group so our perspective is a bit more different that the guys in the second group.
