THE NOVICE’S VIEW
There's a knack to getting aboard one of these things as a driver: one foot on the footstand, the other up on the wheelarch, and remember to hold on to something so you don't fall backwards. Inside, it's comfortable and has good visibility. All the controls are big and unmistakable and the steering wheel is colossal. Best of all - it's so easy to drive. The semi-autobox is a doddle and there's no clutch to worry about. Crucially the hydraulic brakes are strong. I'm thinking of changing career now.
