I'm coming on this ride just so I can be around riders of this level.
I usually enter the turn at double recommended and just maintain throttle until the bike begins to stand up

Just awesome. I can't even imagine.

I'm looking forward to riding with a more analytical mind, where I learn where I truly feel comfortable and make mental notes on speeds I enter and exit compared to recommended speeds.

I just plugged in the route to my GPS.

I had to take some liberties with exactly how we actually get from Starbucks to 362, as it doesn't actually intersect I-10.

But, I see where 359 does, and I assume there is just a short period where we make our way through Brookshire with a dog leg on Old 90.

After that it looks like smooth sailing.

I plugged in Filling Station as an end spot (just to have one) and that works out to 67.2 miles.

We are so close to 3090 I'm betting some of you guys won't be able to resist.

Just put me to the rear of the group ... I'll ride with you guys to 362, and in no time at all I'll know if I need to signal the rear sweeper that I am falling off formation.

It is not LEAVING me if I wave you guys off. I'll have a full tank, and a GPS. I will just create my own ride if I find I am not suited for this ride.

That's how I handle every ride.

I appreciate the back and forth, but the more I think about it - I'm going to wave off this ride, and just do my own thing.

Thanks for answering my questions, and helping me get a better feel for how this all works.

Cool, like I sais before, I'm doing a ride tomorrow that is covering the same ground as this ride.

This is why I went ahead and tried explaining to the best I could what to expect on the ride.

I've done enough to know what to and not to do...tomorrow's ride is geared towards noobs or "more relaxed"

Practice running the road at the posted speed limit, maybe a tad higher, whatever your comfort level is.

Don't slow for the corner, relax, keep a steady throttle
Start trying to feed a little gas as you are in the turn; as you get more comfortable start getting on it earlier in the turns..

Note your speed when you get back on the straights, coming out of the turns, and see if you can work up to that on entry next time

Be CAREFUL on the left-right combos as too much gas in the first turn will often overcook you into the next

The other game is to run a little over posted SL, and play late apex where you just sail deep into the turn and make a single hard turn.. but that is for someone real comfy with leaning the bike and snapping it over
Turns those long 55 mph sweepers into 25 mph radius curves..

You have the right attitude

About the same on the straights and I will speed up about 10-15mph more through the turns...

Constant.
