When in my cage I still think like a m/cst, take note of traffic to even traffic off the road, like hikers, cyclists, to even oncoming cages from another road.
The only things I do not have to be so observant on is if the road has some gravel, oil or such.
Besides I know if I am tapped lightly by another cage I will not be put down on the pavement (possibly injure) & my vehicle damaged to what extent I do not know.
So in a way I relax, but like another mentioned I am aware of the blind spots.
In honesty I prefer my m/c.
