When I first got my Bonnie, (after a couple of years riding) I could ride it faster through the twisties than my RS (which was my first bike).

However, a few weeks doing the tight stuff on my bonnie, and feeling calmer about leaning far, scraping the pegs and turning deep in a corner and I was ready to go back on the RS.

With my new found confidence I found the RS to be so much more capable than me, and I could now hit the corners 20 to 30 mph faster than on the bonnie.

Different bikes bring out different levels of confidence in a rider. Maybe the Tbird is a very confidence inspiring bike.
