Studies relative to motorcycle safety have shown that in general, accidents depend upon your vehicle being seen, and being seen is in turn dependent upon whether or not you are perceived as a threat (police car, cement truck, big bus, etc.
). I flat tow a Honda Fit (big step down from the diesel truck I used to tow a trailer with), and when I'm driving the Honda, I get no respect on the road whatsoever. On the other hand, in the motorhome, even motorists in NJ pay attention to my presence - not out of politeness, but because I am perceived as a threat.
