Dont get caught up in any other pace but your own....the "pace" is subjective to each person. Ride within ur Limits and u will be fine.

I would think the straits do not matter. 75-85 thru the turns is moderate for me but may be different given varying levels of skill.

Take a look at this thread:

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...light=moderate

Info pulled from above thread:

noob/relaxed: SL on the straights, yellow posted in corners depending on group
moderate: SL, maybe 10-15+ on straights and curves
brisk: + on the straights, up to double the yellow sign into curves
spirited: race track on the street basically

This. If it states moderate, and you've not 100% comfortable with doing 50mph or maybe a bit over in a recommended 35mph curve, for example, the ride is not for you.

This also, on ANY ride you go on. Sometimes things change in the course of a ride too, so keeping a good head on your shoulders is paramount.

If you don't think you can keep up then don't go, how ever don't push your self above your limits if you go. I for one won't leave a rider behind and I would hope other riders would do the same for me.

Rule #1 is never ride above your limits even if other riders are.

I never ride outside of what I'm comfortable with. I will not leave anyone behind either. Actually went and picked up a friends bike last night after they went down. Bike wasn't rideable due to coolant leaking out everywhere.

I agree, I ride above noon, but far far below spirited riding. Usually 70-85 thru the RR curves. That's what feels fun and comfortable to me.

2x posted limit is moderate. No . That is literally the definition of moderate.

Moderate for the new guy is going to be a LOT slower than someone like Bluewave. That dude is fast as F*CK!

I've never ridden this "racers road".

Sounds like a place for idiot people to go and prove their worth on the street.
