Well,I havent had my 954 on the track but as far as street performance I love it. I have ridden the other 2 "big bikes"-GSXR1000 and the Yamaha R1. In all honesty both will out do my 954 but really not by much. The 954 falls into corners nicely and has plenty of power to pull out of corners as well. In my opinion the 954 is the most comfortable out of the 3 bikes.Here is a little pic of some titanium knee slider action.
