Re: So what's it like ..?

Many buses have a very long rear overhang. It is quite possible to strike something with that overhang while you are turning. The biggest risk is perhaps when you pull away from the fuel island. It may seem necessary to start turning as soon as you begin moving, and then the outside rear corner smacks the Tokheim and The World Goes Up In Flames. So make a habit of pulling in several feet from the pumps, and watch that tail in general.
