I don't feel safe drafting a truck or bus, mainly because it could pass over a pothole/brick/dead dog/etc. 2 or 3 times I've drafted a slow (40-45kph) truck on a smooth road I knew well. It's nice, but not worth the risk IMO.
OTOH, some of my roadie friends love to draft trucks, the faster the better.
