Question about English (US)

The word "bike" confuses me and I need you help, please.

When someone uses the word "bike," which comes to your mind more naturally, "bicycle" or "motorcycle"? I mean, if a "bike" can mean both, how would you differentiate them?? By the context?

If someone asks you, "Let's go bike touring" ... how would you know if s/he means a bicycle touring or motorbike touring? Would you ask the person which s/he means, or one comes to the native speaker more naturally or more automatically than the other??
