Even just driving can be exhausting.

I think a lot of calories are burned mentally, especially navigating through any sort of traffic.

Other than that, full gear in 90+ degree weather will burn quite a few calories too.

I've never felt physically exhausted though.

Braking hard can exert a few forces on the abs or arms, depending on which muscles you use to brace.

If it is any consolation, I weighed about 200 something pounds when I started riding almost a year ago, right now I'm 165.

You can burn calories while you sleep, so I'm almost sure you can burn a few hundred or so on a good ride.

As with almost any physical activity I'd say it depends. If you are farting around on a treadmill at 1 mph you probably aren't seeing much benefit. Likewise if you're cruising around a bunch of boring roads.

Yes, I think so and it depends on the ride. Dehydration is an issue adding fatigue.
Dirt riding burns a lot more calories than street riding.

I'd say short of track riding, doing MSF style slow speed exercises on a heavy bike would be the most effective calorie burner.
