try down hill 56mph pushing the fairing center back out from where it's bowed in front

Inspired Cycle Engineering Trice QNT, Falmouth, now with a mesh seat and an Argos trailer, 5 months from Blackpool to Blackpool via Lands End and Dover, staying within 5km of the sea. About 2500mls.
6 wks of stops, various 3-5days'ish (not in sequence) for Liverpool, Wirral, Bangor, Abersytwif, Shell Island, Barmouth, St Davids, Tebay, Cardiff, Hunters Inn, Falmouth, Exeter, Eden Project, Poole, Brighton, Portsmouth, Dover, Southend on Sea, Skegness, Hull, Preston and many one nights in between.
Hunters Inn is in a valley, easiest gradient out is 1 in 7, on a Sunday, going in i had 1 in 6, 1 in 4, 1 in 6 and a 90 degree left bend.
i investigated the tangent crunching at 18.6mph (£1200 to repair), back on road Weds 6pm.
they(ICE) came from Falmouth with a hefty set of spares, workbench and tools in an estate car.

when i got back, my doctor honestly did a triple take when he saw me, rather tanned and about 4.5 stone lighter, sadly mini-stollens re-entered my life.
somewhere i have a lot of photos, some mp4 and the gps track, few gig
highlight, decent drizzle, 5mls of slow, slow climb (alt route to a really nasty 1 in 4) picking
miniature strawberries. i can still taste them 5yrs on

I can only get up to about mid 50 kmh on my conventional bike (down a incline with a following wind)

I few people around here ride recumbents, but I've not seen one with a faring.

Thanks for the details about the ELM327 OBD.

Looks like there are loads of differnt types available.

I will probably buy one of the larger ones. Not sure whether to get USB or Bluetooth, but I would rather have one I can take apart, and separate the Bluetooth or USB comms from the OBD interface

My Subaru is about 12 years old, but apparently it does support OBD.

I just looked, and it has something plugged into the OBD port with a wire between 2 of the pins.
But I've no idea what that's for.

Project has taken a bit of a back seat due to time being eaten up by mechanical issues on the target vehicle...

1x Head gasket failure - successfully fixed last weekend.

1x Gearbox failure - repair in progress

Since all bad things tend to come in threes I'm hoping the third one will be minor.
