Why do you opt for zero on the bike and one on 4 wheels?

Risk perception and the comforting effects of being surrounded with a nice big metal cage :D
Serious answer is thats exactly what it is. I perceive the risk of any sensory dulling to be within acceptable margins in the car, whereas its not on the bike. Whether this will change when I have more experience on the bike remains to be seen, but I have found that unavoidable tired riding seriously dims the "spidey sense" (unconscious registering of signals from other drivers, and processing of the surroundings) and given the research about correlation between driving tired and driving pished capabilities, I'm not hugely willing to experiment with beer in order to reach a conclusion.

Besides which, my already lax personal limits become laxer with alcohol, and there arent all that many places to unwind things to over 170...
