Am I really a better Cager bc of my Motorcycle?

I have been riding on two wheels for roughly 5 years now and find my self guessing correctly more and more in regards of road hazards. For example: I will be driving the SUV with the wife and kids and I see some whom looks like they want to merge in front of me after already making some lane changes. I tell the wife "Dude looks like he going to cut right in front of us" And behold he does... Am I going nuts in the thinking that riding on two wheels has really made me a safe cager?Or have I just developed some super human strength.

Unless you're texting while driving, I think it makes you more aware of your surroundings and a defensive driver

It helps, but most who drive terrible in a cage, will continue to drive terrible on 2 wheels.

You are just a responsible and defensive driver, who learns from all on-road experiences.

It usually ends up badly for those... and sometimes for innocent bystanders.

My wife is a very defensive driver, but since I've been riding I pick up on things that she doesn't. Hazards are a little more "real" on a bike, in the sense that while something might cause slight damage to your car, it can kill you on a bike. I believe that when this is understood, you force yourself to be more perceptive to what's going on in ways that a person who only drives cars usually is not.
