I remember reading an article in a magazine a good few years ago, about a tractor which had been tuned/geared for over 100MPH (in addition to a forklift truck, which could do the same), those velocities we take for granted in cars/bikes/trains & planes, but I could only imagine the instability involved in driving these modified vehicles at those speeds.
Still, if tractors could do road speeds safely, then that would help cut congestion on rural roads...
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
