Dont forget the different DA at Gairdiner
I can feel the difference quite clearly
not counting the hp difference you would get, i figure 10-15 mph speed difference on a turbo bike (compensated for hp difference)
How the total drag/hp could apply to the SOS  is something for the more mathematically inclined than i

Wow - a star-crossed journey in some ways, yet as you mentioned, a point on a graph - a star to steer by, if you will.

Doc, you've often said you and the SOS team have been "lucky".  But every journey is a fishing trip.  It's not necessarily the size of the fish, or the number you brought home on your stringer, but what you've learned.

Tres over deuces is still a pretty good hand.  Let it ride.

That number on the graph will be critical to further development of this combination. 

And as to the fruit inspector - I've owned a couple of F-100s over the years, and I have an excellent visual as to how what you described happened. 

And I think it's hilarious. 

Well played.

 cheers

Ok, here is the kicker.

You probably all thought I dramatised it a little

On our way home we took the same route and it was Saturday at about 11am when we passed the fruit inspection point near Renmark, where they only inspect you heading west.

We were in high spirits and as we cast our glance over to the inspection station who should we see , momentarily distracted from the task at hand, looking somewhat angrily our way?

Yes, our man with the bump on his head.We laughed even harder than we had a week before.

 I am just about to look it up on Google maps so I can get the address , so I can send one of our postcards to "the guy with the bump on his head".

 cheers
