Got to agree.
Although I would consider myself quite a seasoned driver (passed my test 1st time aged 17, after 4 lessons), and have driven in all weather conditions in all manner of vehicles. What yesterday taught me was I still have a learning curve to climb.
The largest single factor about riding a bike (so far) to me, was just how surface dependent the entire experience is. You become well aware about camber changes, potholes, surface ripples, drain covers - and that's before the weather comes into play!
Plus, when on a bike, I need to stop thinking "what would I be doing whilst driving?" at each moment - then trying to convert to using the varous controls on the bike.
Driving a van compared with a car is easy - same controls, same pedals etc - moving to a bike is a completely different set-up.
But I'm game for a challenge - and its as much for a business reason, as any other.
Thanks again for the support.
