    SeaSucker Bike Rack Owners... POST YOUR PICS!
    Since the other "Seasucker?" Thread has gotten so huge, I figured we start a new one so all the SeaSucker Bike Rack Owners can post a pic of their racks in use..

    So LETS SEE THOSE SUCKERS!!:D

    SeaSucker Talon purchased from ProEdgeBiker.
    2013 Mustang GT Premium 5.0

    Took it out for the maiden voyage today, down to the bike shop to pick up some new cleats and to show the rack off. Staff was pretty impressed with it, but there were the usual non believers. I was pretty skeptical at first, but after the drive today, I am much more comfortable with it. 75mph and I couldn't even tell it was up there. I felt more wiggle and movement on my Audi A4 with a hitch rack on the back than this.

    I may flip the mount around and put the fork down at the bottom of the rear window, and the back tire up on the roof. If it is more stable that way, even though it will look goofy, I will probably go like that.

    True test is the 45 minute drive to the trailhead for a much needed ride on Friday!

    I love how they throw it in to him, and then the bike. I nearly spit my Coke out when I saw that. :)

    Talon on Mini S
    Have been using the Talon for 10 months. Zero scratches, dents or failures. If you want to limit hard water rings? Put some distilled water in spray bottle before mounting.

    Going on several months with no scratches or dents and lots of conversations with curious on-lookers

    Not sure how many of you guys have seen the HORNET yet but here's a vid.
    This rack allows the front wheel to stay on

    Although it's smaller and more portable then my Talon, seems too much work. Also, I rather have 3 points of contact. Score 1 for the Talon.

    OK!!! I wondered if anyone had mounted it like that, across the trunk. Have you been on the highway with it like this? I am just wondering if there is noticeable drag with it like this.

    a bit of wind noise but no real drag - my other car is an SUV with roof rack and there is less wind noise / drag with this set up

    Pardon the crappy BlackBerry picture, and the horrible background. This is how I have been running mine the last few times. Very stable up there, and on the highway, at 80mph, you don't even feel it. I thought that there might be some drag with the seat up like that, but when you have 420hp on call....I am pretty sure I am not worried about any drag. :)

    Very happy with the purchase so far. Have had no issues at all. Love the Delta mount, and now that it is set, the install is super quick. It is faster than putting a hitch rack on the car, ratcheting the bolt in, putting the lock on, putting the bike on, adjusting, moving any trays or anything like that. I can have the bike on the car in under 2 minutes now and be pulling out. Takes more time to get the cups suctioned on, and adjusting the one for the rear tire.

    Another mounting position i tried.

    I have found that for stability, mounting it to the rear window really helps. The metal on my roof seems to have a lot of give, and for that reason, I will be running my bike backwards.

    Nice Skyline btw. Always like that style.

    Thanks, the roof on the skyline near the window is pretty solid, but i will try off the rear window as well. So far mounting it off the boot i like the most as the bikes don't sit so high.

    I would be too scared to be behind this even though I know how dependable a SeaSucker rack is. MPG must be horrible.

    I have had mine for a few months and its been great. I mount it on the roof so I can still use the trunk. I've had it up to 95mph there is very little wind noise unless you open the sunroof
