I see you have stumbled onto the dichotomy of motorcycling. The forking into two divisions of desire to participate with squids of speed, and (pardon the term) geezers, for longer comfortable lumbering runs where flash and chrome reside. For most, we are held captive by funding limitations set forth by that thing called life, where mortgage and family will eventually consume all discretionary spending and pretty much dictates a path for you. C'est la vie! You be certain to study hard in college so that you are able fill an entire stable full of different types of bikes based on riding mood. Understand the rest of us fill pages of motorcycle magazines with reviews and commentary and also visit motorcycle showrooms trying to find that one magical bullet of a bike to fulfill all of one's needs for quick stints, touring, and crusing comfort. Eventually it is less about the motorcycle's existing features and technological advances, it merely becomes more like where the potential owner is willing to make the biggest compromise in performance or comfort.
I ride with a couple of guys that can't seem to break away from the sport bikes so I know exactly what you're talking about. They had raced previously at New Hampshire Speedway and went through race school so riding is always a brisk pace. Both owned a Roadliner at one time, so they know my capabilities and limitations, but they went back to sport bikes just because they want faster and better handling. It's okay, I'm on the best possible cruiser for this challenge which has all the handling and power needed, plus at the end of the day, we all have fun in our own way. It also allows me to blow the extra carbon out as if there were some or I needed an excuse.
One guy is on a Kawi ZX-14 and also owns a ZX-10 and the other just traded his Bandit for a low mileage Gixxer 1000. He's owned Busas before, and frankly, I don't know how he landing on the Bandit b/c it was so out of character. They have their spurts where they may break away but I'm not too far behind for them to worry and I know they will reach their limit on the amount of miles they can travel long before I even settle into my ride. Of course, it's extremely funny to watch the two old men (in the early 40's) climb off their torture devices and waddle around until they get feeling back into their hips. They are true squids that can't seem to grow up.
Having said all that, instead of two bikes, I think you might even consider a move to a bigger Star. Granted a vtwin does not perform to the level of a 4 (v or I) but a Warrior is a nice blend of sport and cruiser and can do 140 MPH on command. The aluminium frame also handles pretty darn good too.
Most importantly though, you be extremely careful letting the peer pressure push you towards stunting and speed. Keep your head on straight even in the college years when life seems limitless and mortality is never a thought. Remember that frontal lobe is still not fully developed to make rational decisions. It's also a dangerous endevour when you are being moved in a direction outside your comfort zone while riding and begin riding on ego. You've got your whole life ahead of you, you don't need to harm youself, or worst perhaps an innocent person getting too reckless on the street.
