When riding in a car I never feel safe at speed, unless I'm drunk, then it's "is this as fast as this piece of 'll go?"

Car. I'm completely at one with a car and at ease in most any situations. With a bike, although I've ridden at higher speeds than I have in a car, I'm much more aware of how badly it's going to hurt if I go down.

The thing about a car at high speed is that even small movements on the steering wheel result in big/rapid direction changes. You feel more connected to the bike in that you move more of your body to turn vs. moving only your hand to turn the car. If the car's suspension isn't up to the task of high speed handling, you can get hosed in a hurry if you need to make evasive maneuvers.

Bike. I can stop faster or accelerate quicker to get out of a bad situation. These machines are very stable at high speeds even when left stock. So unless you have a bad car and its suspension is tuned there is no comparison. My car just plain sucks even though it is reliable.

I can do 140 mph in a car easily but on the bike, I feel that 130 mph is getting a bit scary. I am with Mulatto on that one, I am just aware of how much it would hurt...

I know that if I took a car on the track (which I cannot wait to do), I would feel much more comfortable pushing it than on the bike.
