Take it out for an extended high speed run and the bike is at a huge aerodynamic disadvantage. Start throwing mods at these cars and you can get into liter bike territory quickly.

Motorcycles have the same issue braking that they do going around turns. It's all about coefficient of friction where the rubber meets the road. Most sport bikes can stop from 60 mph in around 120 feet. Sport cars (and even sporty cars) with sticky tires can do it in closer to 100 feet.
Well look at that guess you must be full of shit too....
