    Surely you just flop into it. Getting out is the embarrassing bit.

    I can't just "flop" into a Stratos, cos 1) I'd hit my head on the top of the door opening going in, and 2) my name isn't Fosbury. However I have, recently, begun to develop a strategy that gets me in and out without resulting in too much hilarity....I'll give my knees 6 months

    I've found the best technique for getting out is to use your elbows - left one on the windscreen edge on the A-pillar and right one on the body "hip" just aft of the doorframe - plus accompanying groaning !
