I think the oddest or the coolest thing you can see is what appears to be a little West Indian granny driving a large bus around London. Not that you’d dare to argue with one of ‘dem sisters’ anytime!
I love driving Sprinter vans of all things. I just dig the way the classic long body, high line bus handles. They can actually be fun in the rain.
Ironically the same week l had to cancel a Buell ride into Wales due to having a bad head, l was despatched 2 days later to drive a Sprinter on a multi drop around mid Wales along the same roads l planned to ride my XB on. Shame the 3.5T van can’t do the 483 from Welshpool to Builth with quite the same verve as a Buell, and with deference to half a tonne of fragile bits in the hold!
Although I’m more frequently asked to drive Citroen Relays with cruise control up or down the motorways. Better when l get the one that’s not been restricted to 66mph so that l can actually overtake.
The annoying thing for me is how Covid destroyed my regular fun run in a Sprinter to London. Now I’m on Agency stand by and sometimes get passed over for what seems like an increasing number of other drivers on the books, some of whom maybe get round in less time, but drive like morons and rev the shit out of the vans......because they don’t give a FF and want to get home early.
