I think when you first get a bike, you're "hyper aware" of what's going on around you, so the differences of getting back into a car are even more pronounced than they would be for a more experienced rider. At least that was my experience.

Besides the ridiculous blind spots, like someone else mentioned here, I don't even bother to accelerate the truck much to get it up to speed. Once you get used to a motorcycle, it's kind of like, what's the point?
