it's harder to get away from a potentially dangerous situation in a cage. like cars merging into you.

accidents will happen in a car or on a bike, that's the truth. there's a greater chance of not getting injured in a car compared to a motorcycle.

a bike is less noticable than a car is, by far, meaning people don't always see you.. therefore increasing the chances of someone merging into your lane.

i'd rather be in a car if i got in an accident than a motorcycle. i'm a safe rider by far, hell i'm been called a gear nazi on here several times.

i don't see many logical reasons of why a motorcycle is safer. did any of your friends or family members say "becareful on the bike?" how about "becareful driving your car, because of crazy drivers."

i personally felt safer and more in control on my bike. i would never allow cars to be anywhere near me. when i'm surrounded by stupid drivers in my cage, there's no way to escape or get away. like someone else said too, with cars merging, changing lanes, etc., you always have an escape route planned when you're riding. you don't have that option in a car.

if the question was "AFTER you get in an accident, whats safer?" then yeah, a car obviously.

in automotive racing, seldom do they refer to safety when talking about pre-crashing. same goes for safety ratings on cars.

he just asked whats safer, a car or a bike. if your chance of getting in an accident is less on a bike than in a car, i would say the bike is safer. the accident doesn't have to occur to discuss safety.

yeah, actually, it does. otherwise we're talking about collision avoidance, which has no effect on how safe something is.

no brainer. cage.
i think you're more alert on a bike but, if the a$$hat next to you decides to change lanes without looking, you're better off taking that hit in a cage.
