If travelling alone or with my babe I would prefer a bike normally considering the weather is nice.

otherwise with a family or during bad weather times or crusing along with some music and babe along its a car.

both 2-wheelers and 4-wheelers have their own advantages and disadvanteges.

cars cannot do wheelies and stoppies. Can they?

same way bikes cannot be modified to beat cars and the music oh boy! how can some1 miss music..

Guys... What are we talking about here?
Skills in driving a Bike and a Car.

It definitely requires more skills to drive a 1500 CC Bike than driving a similar powered Car. There are no second thoughts.

That is exactly why its so so difficult to get a 2 wheeler licence here in the US, than a 4 wheeler one.

No stoppies for sure...But wheelspins, burnouts, 360's, 180's and 'wheelies' are possible

You spoke exactly what I was thinking..

Maybe it was my mistake or I did not explain properly..

I just wanted an opinion as to which of the following is easier..

Riding a bike or Driving a car....period

Karthik, the Honda Goldwing comes with a 6 CD changer.

And I've seen Minis and Porsche 911s do stoppies.

And they can do wheelies. Remember Fast and Furious towards the end where they are having the drag race across the tracks. Cant remember which car it was though.

That's a 1970 Dodge Charger. Should come stock with a 440 Magnum engine, fed by three twin-barrel carbs, putting out close to 400bhp. Surprisingly for a muscle block, it's oversquare! (All useless info )
