Both sided drive handle on SP

I've now used the mower twice, and love it, however I wish the drive handle was on both sides. As it stands, right hand turns are easy, but making left handed turns requires reaching across the product to get to the drive handle. This appears awkward after having come from a mower that used a bar across the entire length of the handle to control movement.

Is this on the radar? I'd like to see an inverted version of kill switch on back side to control movement allowing ambidextrous usage. Either that, or mirror the existing handle and bind them together mechanically (like snow blowers do with auger/drive handles), so I can still access it, but would only need to hold one side to lock both handles. Thoughts?
