had a nice big semi tow me up to 50km/h on the Tonking Hwy, I caught him again at the Roe Hwy lights and had another go!! Was almost disappointed to join the shared path, but found a nice tailwind to help me home. bloody marvellous.

riding on the shoulder immediately adjacent to the rear of the trailer - move further into the shoulder when i can't keep up..... the beauty of the trike with the semi's is you don't have to worry about the push/suck as they go past at speed, they just give you a pull along :)

cheers

It's real adrenaline stuff, I can't resist it either. Ride safely mate.
