Why a car is better than a motorcycle over all

Driving a motorcycle is very different from driving a car; your surroundings come into play when riding a motorcycle, while cars aren't affected as much.

My motorcycle was completely damaged, I had no choice but to buy a new one because my insurance said it was totaled and it is not worth fixing it, while in my car I just had to fix the rear light, which did not cost much.
