No different to opening up the thottle of a m/c as pressing down on the gas pedal of a car/truck. So you will find the same info in the libragy.
A car/truck is self-balanced with four wheels & is partailly protected with all its coverage while a m/c only has two wheels so balance & traction is, shall we say 'on the tippy side', & the only protection to the rider of a m/c is crash helmet & other protective gear he will purchase & use constantly.
Lastly a fender-bender of one cage with the other is pretty simple & no one is hurt. The thing is who was in the wrong & does the person in the wrong carry insurance.
If it is a m/cist VS cage in a fender-bender the bike will be down & damaged a bit to a lot while in many cases the rider will be hauled off to the emergency ward of the hospital.
