speaking as someone who daily drives a motorcycle half the year, I think there's a whole aspect of safety that improves when you're on a high performance vehicle: crash avoidance. As long as I'm awake and alert, I've avoided crashes on my motorcycle that were impossible to avoid in a camry.

Unfortunately, you wouldn't have to avoid so many crashes if drivers didn't get brainfarts when they see motorcycles, so it's not exactly an advantage.

Maybe with an 1800lb nimble and fast car you could get the crash avoidance benefit without inducing crash causing brainfarts in other drivers because you still look like a car.

I've never seen a collision between a unibody car and tubular framed car. I wonder how that plays out.
