Thumbs down

If you have both, just measure it and see for yourself.

That being said, this is not a very good idea IMO.

You could always do what people do with their bicycles and tie them down to the hood of their vehicle. That should work.

Obviously you chaps did not see the photo of some chap with a Hondar RC-51 on his dinged in old Honda Civic & on a special rack with the cage leaning off to one side due to shot suspension? We could not figure out how he got it on & wondered, IF(?) the vehicle made point of destination, how he would unload it, while others felt at the next tight hwy bend the whole set-up would go over.

You have to be kidding me! The RC-51 is no lightweight bike either. I have a Honda Civic and I couldn't imagine it supporting a bike! Why do I always have to miss the funny stuff?! The funniest thing I have witnessed is a midget walking on his hands in the mall, but that's about it.

Maybe it was a different pic, but I thought it was a 929 on a CRX... either way the guy is a few fries short of a happy meal. There was also a pic of some other Honda guy (coincidence? ) loaded in the back seat/trunk lid of his convertable lebaron.

Look . . . the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances, we guard you while you sleep. Do not fu|< with us.

Good memory wantanaprilia for that is the one. So it was actually a 929 which, in dry wt, was even lighter thent he RC-51.

The 929 on the CRX picture got dumped a while back in a server crash, but here is the other one....
