A little learning is a dangerous thing;
Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring:
There, shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
And drinking largely, sobers us again.

I enjoy enlightening ... and enlivening the spirit of the innovators.

Using this graph, it should be possible to approximate the effect of a tailwind on your possible top speed.
"Terminal Speed Road Load - Wind Resistance" Line should be slid right, the appropriate mph of tail wind, and possible speed, read at intersection point.
Likewise, the effect of a headwind could be approximated, by sliding left, the appropriate mph.
