Advice needed ...is it possible to buy a kit to enable me to detach my right hand side steering wheel and clip it to the left side...thus enabling me to overtake easier whilst traveling abroad ...
Thanks in advance

Now that is such a great idea!

How about if it's tricky to do mechanically, let's just have the steering wheel in the middle. That way, you don't have to become used to a new driving position and driving is equally sh1@ regardless of whichever country you're in. :rofl::rofl::rofl:

Probably, but it will be very expensive (n)

I read somewhere all cars are built to be left hand drive and then are altered for the right hand drive countries with kits. Some cars brake master cylinder is on the left with linkages to the right hand side :eek:

I realise it's a joke mind :cool:

Can't remember where, but have definitely seen a car with two functional steering wheels (and pedals).

Not quite as daft as it sounds. For driver training in some countries there are dual steering wheel setups.

Dual controls (foot peddles) on the moho....No Way!
With the missus sat beside me, we would never pull out into traffic, stop at every roundabout (cos you ave to) and do an emergency stop at every amber traffic light:eek:
I wonder if it would stop her saying "Theres one" before rather than when we have just past a car parking space in a busy car park.
Nah, only joking, she is a great driver really in her car, she can reverse & parallel park better than most, but no C1 entitlement to drive the van unfortunately:whistle:

Reminds me of a joke car built a few years ago with the steering and controls in the back. They sat a dog behind the front steering wheel to make it look like the dog was driving and back windows were tinted to hide the real driver. very funny

I thought there was no such thing as a silly question and to just ask but it seems there is and you are sub standard and live amongst us instead no wonder some people do not post very often

Now I do remember driving a vehicle where you could drive with the engine/steering wheels in front of you ! Then you could detach the steering wheel /column tip it forward ,and then you could drive the vehicle with the engine behind you !!! The steering wheels were behind you. Any funsters know of this vehicle ????

All motorcycles have them in the middle too :love:
Some also have handle bars for the front driver and the pillion... seriously they do! When we were on holiday in either Hungary or Slovakia last year we were driving along and I noticed a 'weird' position for a pillion passenger on the back of a motorbike, the older chap was leaning forward more than normal against the back of the front driver ... on closer viewing as we drew up alongside we could see that the bike was a normal motorbike but it had a second handlebar etc set-up behind for the riding instructor -the front and rear bars were 'linked' with what looked like to long rods. If you imagine a tandem bicycle where the front and rear riders have their own handlebars you'll understand what I mean, unfortunately I couldn't get a photo as they turned right and we were going straight on (in a straight on lane) so couldn't follow them.

On a motorbike if they turned right they should actually have gone left :p
