    When you are riding your motorbike, you do not have the protection of the car or other vehicle in which you sit.  Although riders wear crash helmets, and most of them wear leathers for protection, there are injuries you can get from a motorbike accident that you would not get in a car accident; you are more vulnerable on a bike.
