I've been training and racing bikes for 5 years now. I've also been riding motorcycles for years and years.

Has anyone else noticed that as you ride your bike more, your instincts/reflexes riding a motorcycle get all screwed up?

Motorcyclists are worse than cagers.

Not a motorcycle user, but I've always thought they must conflict with differences like countersteering and brake placement. Are those the main things or is there a lot more?

Yeah, similar to that. For instance, on a motorcycle, in almost all situations, you lean with the bike when taking curves or corners. On the bike, I was taught to lean the bike when taking corners at high speed, which would land me in the hospital (or in a pine box) if I did that on the motorcycle. The net effect in this example is that it ends up feeling really squirrely and sketchy being at high speed on the motorcycle in curves.
