am i too slow ?

I ride a 600 cc fazer and i am first to admit that i am slow. i recently did a bikesafe course and it really improved my use of gears and cornering but the copper who i was riding with said that my problem was my overtaking, we were riding rural roads with 60 mph limits but when i came up behind cars that were doing 45-55 mph he said i i should be overtaking to "progress". I am happy just sitting back relaxing rather than constantly looking for an overtaking oppurtunity then after the overtake just to catch up with the next car and start the process again. My mates love it as im the only biker they know that has been told by the police to speed up :smile. To be honest it has put me off doing and futher training. What do you lot think,should i speed up ?
