Sportbike riders are fast in a straight line, but I have been able to hang with or pass a lot of them in the curves, on my Vulcan 750. The bikes themselves have amazing capabilities, but mot of the people that ride them don't. Many of them can do wheelies and stoppies, but are afraid to lean the bike over. In fact, there have been a number of single vehicle accidents on one of our local favorite motorcycle roads, where the rider went into a curve a little to fast, panicked, locked up the brakes, and skidded right off the road, when they could have easily made the turn just by leaning over a little further.
