As far as pace, I don't think we will be cruising more than 75 on straights. We will be riding the corners pretty hard though.
This is my first time there and I understand there are a lot of corners posted at 20/30 mph so it should be fun on motards. There will probably be a bunch of people out there on Saturday

Brought an extra gallon for you know who. What's funny is I just changed my oil today and will probably have to change it again while we are out there. High maintenance .

You've never been there and you'll be hitting the corners "hard."
Have fun with that.

The key to surviving street rides is to never exceed a pace that limits your options to avoid / get out of unforseen situations. Like Mongo stated never cross the yellow line. I generally run tight lines because you can always ease up and go wider but it is sometimes difficult to tighten a line mid corner. I grew up and have done most of my riding in Latin America and down there you never know whats around the next corner.
I appreciate your concern but I believe I can take care of myself

Fair Warning!! Don't ride behind Byrdman as there is a good chance you will get hit in the face with engine parts.
