Have fun following your buddy, but don't try to keep up if you feel out of you comfort zone. There will always be a place to catch up. I always slow down on the straights and keep the pace down a click when riding with someone. The last thing I want to do is have some get hurt. Try coming into the turn from the outside of your lane,making a later apex, and looking through the end. I see you were hugging the inside of the turn going in, that leaves you no room to adjust your line and you could wind up drifting out in the other lane.Also a mis conception many folks have, is to brake into the apex and throttle out. Thats allright for a experiensed racer trying to cut lap time. But its better to have your braking done early,speed under controll going in, you can throttle sooner getting the weight transfer on the back wheel, and you can power out. You'll find you have room to adjust for unforseen circomstances, come out harder and faster. I see you were not coming in hot(good thing) but practicing these technics will make you feel more comfortable going into a turn.
Again I'm not try to be a know-it-all, just want motorcycling to be a enjoyable experience. A track school will teach you sooo much,you'll never regret it if you get the chance. Dan

smooth operator is giving great advice... Take heed & don't try to keep up!

The group I ride with follows 'the pace'. It's a long read (as far as internet articles go), but it's a good system & will make you a better rider:

Ive read "The pace" We dont race or go too fast. But we both have driven that road a few times so we getting more comfortable. I dont ride with big groups because someone always seams to do something stupid and get hurt.

Coming in hot is def not something I want to do. One of the guys I've rode with before had a buddy on a SV650 Go in hot and get on the brake and went strait off the road. Ive never noticed this on my crusiers but def can feel it on the SV. Ive gone into a parking lot and rode in a circle to get on the brakes to feel how the bike stands up and man let me tell you...the SVs want to stand strait up and it feels scary.

Watching NASSSSSSSCAR!!! has given me a few tips with that...Brake Early, Let the car roll thru the apex and throttle out. Seems to work good on the bikes too.

thats the first time i've heard that one in 33 1/2 years of bike riding.

I think yer mamma wrapped you up in too much cotton wool as a child

Have you though about selling the bike and taking up knitting instead, I hear thats a bit safer

but seriously, you shouldn't ride beyond your capabilities, only hard arse real British men can do that

It may be the first time you've heard that but you know it's funny. Ill be honest and say that I'm not expert, but I have never had a bike go down in 5 years. Well...if you dont count not putting the kick stand down then i have never had one go down. I made the team of people I am riding with go read "The pace" though. My close buddy and I ride so often we dont even have to try and comunicate when we ride. It just all comes natural to us if that makes sense. I've just now started "riding" the sport bike though.

AND I WILL NEVER sell my bike. If I was told by a women its me or the bike...I would gear up and head out into the sunset lol.

And when i watch my video again...It doesnt look like I ride all that bad just need to teak it. Maybe I'm wrong though.

Great road. Used to ride this road alot when I was living there back in the early 80s. A lot less traffic and no real anything out there. It was great

Yes this guy was definitely riding within his limits. If this dude had been riding cruisers for 5 years then that kinda explains it. Those cruiser guys just kinda chill an..... cruise. Pete you never fail to crack me up. The OP mentioned posting some new videos after the fact. I'm wondering if he ever made it to the end of the road for as fast as he was goin?
