    I was referring to Regulars who pick up the skill...

          Ah but TD was talking about Irish roads. Back when we used the Bedfords it took 13 hours to do the 30 miles!!!!!!!!!!!
          try disengage the 4 wheel drive next time.Max safe road speed for the MFR2 as opposed to the brits MK was about 40mph

          Did the driving course on a Leyland Terrier...lots of go fast but the brakes were always a few seconds behind the oncoming event.

            Whats the max truck speed got to do with it?
            Mulingar is only about 50 miles. It was a 2.5 hour journey. An hour of that was getting the 2 miles through Lucan.
            As for Dublin - Cork that WAS an all day event. It was not unusual to spent 1-2 hours trying to get through Naas.

            Why does everyone pick on the terrier??

                Same for the bedford 4x4.

                I prefered the Terrier to the Bedford.
                More comfortable and less noisy.
                Then again I was only a learner. We drove from Clonmel to Tramore at 25mph.

                  No slagging the Bedford!!, got my license in one. If you can parallel park a Bedford (no power steering!) everything else comes easy
