Motorcycling *can* make one a much safer cager. It definitely does that to me. I actively check blind spots and scan side to side numerous times through intersections. Bicycle racing even from decades ago does too. I routinely look through the windows of that car in front of me to see what that car in front of them is doing just like looking 2-3 bikes ahead in a pack where your front wheel is inches from someone's back wheel. Never raced motorcycles so I couldn't fathom all that a moto GP racers mind would be processing.

I prefer to travel in threes... "Me, Myself, and I."
