It's all backwards

Maybe it's just me, but when I get off my motorcycle and
hop into my truck there's just this feeling of weirdness.
Until today I couldn't pinpoint it, but it's because the
truck is all backwards.

What I mean is, how the truck operates is all wrong. On
the motorcycle you clutch and brake with your hands,
shift and brake with your feet, and you push to steer.
Much more natural. Now the truck, you clutch and brake
with your feet, shift with your hand, and turn a wheel
to steer. Such an awkward setup.

Oh well, I suppose that's what makes riding soo much better,
now I understand why I hate getting off the bike.
