Hi John, all good advice from everyone one; however, the easiest is getting in and then once you’re in you won’t want to get out anyway 😀. The other thing to mention is, you’ll look like the joker in Batman for a while, the smile whilst driving is hard to get rid of😊. Have fun.

Thank you, Richard.
Much friendliness here - a potent sales force for the car, and very encouraging.

Welcome John!

If you are looking for a local(ish) Type 3 to climb in/out, I am in East Lancs. I appreciate that might be the wrong side of t'hills for West Yorkshire but let me know!

Thank you very much Matt, for your helpful offer.
At present, with Covid-19 restrictions, and unreliable weather, it isn't a good time to undertake such an outing, but I'd like to accept your offer. Perhaps I could venture across the Pennines in a few weeks' time, at a date to suit you, of course?
Good wishes,
John

Maybe worth considering that the cockpit on a T4 is significantly larger than all other models and the entry / exit process much easier !

Thanks for making that point, which is something I hadn't realised.
Once I have sat in a car, many of my questions will be answered. The questions that remain seem to me to be too silly or trivial to ask on this forum, among experts and veterans... .

Nothing's too trivial , John - we were all "newbies" once, me in particular, not having ever been a motorcycle rider, and I still am puzzled by a lot of Triking minutae, like "why is the ignition key under the dashboard" :)
