Okay, then it's a bit confusing in the other direction.
Fair enough. I'll change it. Does the Juggernaut make more sense now?

Exposed Crew: On a Crew critical hit, the vehicle’s armor provides no protection.
Unfortunately, the swirling arcane storm of magic within an Automaton makes it impossible for a controller to enjoy its full defenses by riding inside. ... Such controllers need to wear body armor or have some other kind of protection to survive heavy combat.

You mean other than the post above where you get into exceptions and special rules differentiating targeting the pilot in this particular case, because its a "magical robot Pegasus"?
I went back and looked at the Highway-Man motorcycle again, and compared it to the two hovercycles offered in the TLPG. No mention of the hovercycle pilot having special targeting exceptions for being in the air vs. the motorcycle. Because, like that automaton pilot, a hovercycle pilots would be in "essentially a saddle" and so "essentially unprotected from enemy fire". Which is somehow different from a ground based motorcycle? For reasons? Are you not seeing the direct correlation here?
