@Mad Phil WSBK is where old racers go to die and new racers try to make a name for themselves. No matter what fans of the series may think history show that riders consider the move from WSBK to MotoGP to be a step up. It's equally true that riders move the other way when they can no longer cut it or can't get a contract in MotoGP.
As for "real racing" there is more margin for error on superbikes so mistakes aren't as costly, as such riders can take greater risks and get away with it when they don't work. MotoGP on the other hand does not allow mistakes. As such the joy to be had in watching MotoGP is in watching real masters at work. You can draw an analogy with football. A game in League One might sometimes have more action than a permiership match, but the quality of the football is not up to the same level.
