In the little Mog, you become a profound participant in any journey, rather than just viewing it through the windows in nearly real 3D. Reach out, and you can burn yourself on the exhaust pipe, rip the skin from your fingertips on the road, grasp the other side of the cockpit without even stretching. Look down, and you can sight over the top of the engine, view bits of suspension jinking and breathing, actually see the bone-twisting vibration and the spiky teeth of the RAF decals reflected backwards in the domes of the headlight surrounds. It's like watching part of the Battle of Britain live in the back of a spoon.
