(Screen dump from a road report)
Well, I know it's not a such a great top speed ... but it's on record, and being "GPS'ed" is probably a bit more
accurate than what Birtle's speedo was telling me. 86 kph = 53 mph.
I photographed the screen on the portable telephonic communications device I had with me.
After a couple of passes over this lovely bit of twisty road at the bottom of Tasmania
earlier this year, I decided to see how fast I really was going. Must say it seemed
like it was a lot more than 53 mph! Probably would have got a bit more out of Birtles if he had
not been loaded with about 25kg of camping gear.
