Last time I checked there is only one person allowed per bike, so stop making excuses and stay in advanced.......unless you REALLY need to be the big fish in the intermediate pond. Your always bragging about how fast you are to all your co-workers, stay in advanced and prove it

It's always a good time to "pole position" intermediate.... but let's face it, a person can learn a lot more running with those who are faster.

What's the saying, "To get good at something, surround yourself with those that are better than you"....

Something like that....

It seems to be safer in "A" but to be honest I am an intermediate rider, when I have ridden in "A" I feel like I'm in the way, getting passed doesn't bother me I just can't ever tell if I'm holding other riders up.

Come and find me. My name's Nick, I will be instructing / coaching riding the #5 Black SV650. I will help you out and answer any questions you have. Look for the big ugly brown GMC van. I should also have a GSXR750 for sale with me. Good bike, good shape for 1200 bucks.
