One thing I have noticed when taxiing the B747 with the Body Gear Steering inoperative is that you have to "overshoot" your intended line of direction during turns far more (ie go much deeper into turns); it feels like taxiing a much longer aircraft all of a sudden.

Another piece of outstanding engineering on the most beautifully designed aircraft I have had the fortune to fly.
