Been there many times. Rule #1 Stay in your own lane!
The ideal bike for that road is a 400 - 650 supermotard with race compound tires on it. Get as close to that as you can. Flat-spotted tires are a no-no. Stretched and lowered bike is a no-no, you need the cornering clearance and you need the bike to turn. Crap suspension is a no-no; you need the bike to turn. Stunt cages that kill cornering clearance are another no-no; know of someone who found that out the hard way. It is a TIGHT road.
If you are going there in the summer, try to go during off hours and/or in the middle of the week. Weekends and the days on either side are a frustrating slow motion parade.
Fortunately, there are many other roads in the area that see less traffic and fewer cops and are the equal or better. Want to find them ... just turn off the main roads.
Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!
