and it didn’t really help me at all. Of course, that’s mostly because I’m not a very good driver, but the point is well taken I think.
I think with me, all the new, motorcycle-specific stuff I had to learn crowded out anything I might have used from my automobile experience. About the only place where it helped was an understanding of lines in turns, something key to motorcycle riding, but not really known to your average driver.
To expand on eternal’s point, in cars (barring a Veyron or whatever at triple digit speeds perhaps) bad things happen a lot slower than they do on motorcycles. Car crashes seem to happen almost in slow motion, but a bike going down happens in a split second.
