    I gotta ask Mbab, whats with the lights on the Fit? LOL

    I just put a Thule roof rack on my '11 SI sedan. I still have the hitch rack on it though that i've used for a few years. Hitch rack is WAY easier, quieter, and doesnt require wheel removal. Got the roof rack so I can haul a kayak, so I put the bikes up there now also. Still cant get rid of the hitch yet though. I'm not sold on the roof rack for bikes yet. Pictures will be posted in a day or two

    Update: Photo's added





    '14 Camber EVO, and the '04 S-Works Epic up top. Don't hate on the flat pedals on the S-Works. My girlfriend is just starting to ride :)

    All around road trip vehicle.

    So far the gf and I have driven to Memphis and Rushmore from Minneapolis. I want to drive to Mexico next year or drive to Yellowstone. We just sleep in the back of the element, never need a tent. We do however need a better packing solution.

    This September there are four guys and four bikes head out to WI for the Cheq 40, I hope everyones stuff fits inside and the little 4 cylinder can handle the load. When the wheels fall off this one I want to get a 07/08 with the 10hp more and the 5th gear.

    If you're going to use a Honda to carry your bike, at least make it a Honday worth being seen on!

    The dude that owns these bikes knows what's up.

    Anyone try getting bikes into an HR-V yet? It looks even taller than my 2013 Fit.

    I bet bikes would go in there with ease. I'm curious to see how well they fit.

    I actually did at the dealership. With the seats folded my fat bike easily fit in the back of a new HRV with both wheels on. Have to find time to go back and drive one.

    Did you have to scoot the front seat forward at all?

    I really like the HRV's. I am sold on the magic seats, as they have been VERY useful in my Fit.

    An all Honda household here; I use a platform hitch rack on both.

    Me: '09 Civic LX. Nothing fancy, just does what it's supposed to do. 162K, with me putting on 151K in the last 4 years. Nothing other than the obligatory fluids, tires, brakes, etc.

    Wife and kids: '07 Ody, 105K. Other than me replacing the sliding door center rollers and the obligatory 105K timing belt replacement (:madman::madman:) it's been all good.

    Finally broke down. Many years ago I purchased a 1992 Honda Accord, drove it until 2005 when I sold it and purchased an 05 CRV. Really bought it for my daughter to drive, college and all, but once she graduated it was back to mine. 10 years driving this little thing and it did everything I needed a vehicle to do. Carry the bike, both inside and out, carry the dog, inside only and was just dependable. Well over the summer it was not so dependable and ended up breaking down on the side of the road. Fuel rail and $1200 later back running but there was this issue and I knew it was in the transmission. Had my mechanic drive it and he assured me it was the torque converter failing and would run $1500 for repair. That same day I traded it off and purchased a 2013 CRV EXL used from a local dealer. So far, I love this little car. Pics will follow...
