I was watching your pal in the mirror - around 4:34 he appears to be in 3 while you're advocating 1. Does he need retraining? :)

Hard to say. ;) The trouble is riding at #2 the rider at #1 does influence your position and decision making. It also depends how regularly you ride together.

As a guide, it's 'staggered' ie 1 3 1 3 on a straight and in-line through bends (with good separation).
Your 'standard' is how you drive alone, not how you drive during a test.

That's true. There's also an element of lag looking at where the rider behind is in the video.

When riding at #2, #3 etc. the positioning of the rider ahead is also information to use in your riding plan and position decisions. Just as you can use a car ahead to 'sweep the road' for you.
