    I love 4 wheels more than anything. I just feel safer and gives me alot more confidence and allows my wife to sleep better at night. More balance is better for me.

    I do not do well on two wheels, so a 4wheeled one for my choice also. I rode on behind a friends motorcycle one time, and was terrified the whole time. But shucks, I rode on the four-wheeler behind my husband, and I was scared, too, so even having four wheels doesn't make me very brave, I guess.
    I really like driving a smaller size truck, and my favorite would have to be either a Mazda B2200, or a Ford Ranger. I have owned both, put a lot of miles on them, and been totally satisfied with their capabilities.

    I have to tell you this. Stability is not the major worry. The big worry is the cagers (cars) who 'did not see him' .

    That and finding gravel or crusher dust on the road while in your turn.

    When a bike is moving it wants to stay up.

    I'll take 4 wheels. It's safer and more stable.

    I prefer being in a four-wheel vehicle being on the open road and a two weel vehicle is very uncomfortable, I much more enjoy being in a four-wheel vehicle, I feel a lot more comfortable and safe.

    Here is an old quote for riders about riding.
    When I am in a car I worry about when I am going to get there.
    When I am on a bike, I don't cause I am already there.
    Practicality, yeah my truck is more practical but
    riding the v-twin makes life worth living, for me anyway.

    I'm planning on getting a motorcycle license and a motorcycle in the future. I don't really like the feeling of being boxed in on all sides, so I prefer them to cars. Also, better gas mileage.

    personally for me a 4 wheel is much better for me , I am able to do and go as far as I want to go , in terms of mountain hiking and beach trips , I also find that the 4 wheel uses up less of my energy.

    I would have to go with four wheels too. I've never really been into motorcycles, though many of my family members are.

    Probably a four wheeled machine is my preference here. It slays space, throttles time and gets you across more territories faster. Though I enjoy riding bikes, I hate the notion in which the miles I cover rely on the sweat of my own brow. With a car I don’t need to fight with the environment as its body helps resist atmospheric elements. Actually with a car you don’t feel the blast of the arctic air or the wind on skin. A four wheeled machine will definitely let you live in an artificial cosset.

    I love being on 2 wheels but would most likely opt for 4 wheels. Especially if I was going to be living in a cold weather climate. Riding in the rain and cold isn't much fun, to me anyways.

    If I had to choose between two wheels and four wheels for my complete life, I would choose cars.

    Cars are much more comfortable than bikes. A car has hundreds of features that a bike can never have such as in built Air Conditioner, Airbags, and large sized seats. A family car can accommodate up to 5 people but a bike can just 2 to its maximum, so it is excellent to go long tours and drives.

    There are many pictures of bikes on the net with 3-5 people on them. I would not recommend it but it had been done.

    If you have a side car you could do 3.

    Ummm you put me dilemma as bike I love bike riding and driving car too, so its hard to decide. But if it comes to only once in lifetime, I then I would rather prefer car as I like riding bike a lot but I am not selfless that I can keep riding a bike even in dirt and rainy weather giving up the option of car forever.:(

    This is easy for me! I've never driven a motorcycle, so I would choose 4 wheels!
    My dad would choose 2 though, I'm sure. It would be tough come winter though.

    How about those new 3 wheelers?

    I don't know if anyone rides those in the winter. Going off topic for a sec, I have a big issue with one thing when it comes to them. They say you can get your
    motorcycle license with that. That is motorcycle like but it is not a motorcycle.

    You should be able to ride them with a motorcycle license but you shouldn't be able to ride a motorcycle if you took the test on that. You are not showing that you can handle a motorcycle when you take a test on that. They should add a trike class of license.

    Guess I would have to choose four wheels only for practicality of getting stuff where it needs to go. Two wheels are great fun, just like 4 legs and "horse" power.

    If I lived in California or any climate that doesn't have a winter season, I would probably go with 2 wheels, even though I don't know how to read a motorcycle yet.
    To me, sport bikes are the cheapest way to go fast.

    I would have to go with four wheels. Two wheels can be an awesome experience but I feel much safer in a four wheel than on two, especially if I really have to pick up a little speed to get to my destination.
