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

accident evasion has little to do with occupant safety.

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.

You've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

I cant remember if it was the Hurt Report or a Proficient Motorcycling study, but it stated that a properly attired rider who commutes regularly is at the same, or lower, risk of getting in to an accident as a car driver. The weekend warrior is at a higher risk of getting in to an accident than a car driver. So what is safer? Depends on how you ride. I commute and feel as safe as when I drive.

People falsly believe that a cage is safer than a bike, but why? If you crash your car, you could die. If you crash your bike, you could die. Can one thing really be considered safer than another when the end result could be death? This is like askin would you rather be shot or stabbed. The end resuly could be as little as a scratch, or as bad as death.
