    i nominate those big, brown ups vans. they make a great hole in the air without you choking on diesel (lorries) or getting covered in heaven knows what (tractors).
     
  2. I like drafting a milk float.

    bendy buses!

    they have a nice big indicator light on the side that you can grab for a decent tow as well!

    Heavily laden lorries.

    They accelerate slowly so you don't have to bust a gut getting up to 30+ they do manage to get to a decent speed, unlike milkfloats or tractors, they don't stop every 2 mins like a bus, and they have a massive wake so you don't have to sit right in the muck.

    Yep, Some weekends, I used to weekly commute last summer between E Yorks and Glasgow in a 2CV. Sticking in behind a large truck was definitely the way to go. Sadly, my student daughter has 'pinched' the 2CV so I only see it every so often.

    The best thing to draft is a dragster on the Utah flats, like Fred Rompelberg did when he set the fast-boy-on-a-bike speed record.


    268 kph!!!!!!!!!!!
