"I ride a motorcycle, and a self driving Tesla of this generation is probably less likely to kill me than it's owner. "

This, in spades. In the wake of Joshua Brown's death the USA's NTSB stated that according to their stats Teslas are 40% less likely to be involved in a crash vs any comparable vehicle. The system isn't perfect by a long shot, but it's clearly already better than a lot of human drivers.
