That's nothing. I had a lifted H1 Hummer park next to me in Kelowna once. I took a pic but it got deleted. Looked hilarious.

It sucks when they don't see you and run OVER your car. My dad was pulling into the driveway with his truck, ran over the front end, and just thought it was the curb. It had tire tracks over the fender, headlight, bumper, and turn signal housing. Tt bent the fender and broke the turn signal housing.

Haha... well I tried but it didn't fit. And I didn't want to scratch the bar or the bike too much.

The rack cost $60 and works great.

I used to do that...Saris Bones is perfect for the Miata.

Never looked cool though, felt like a healthy, yuppy *** carry my Specialized out back of a Miata with the top down (pre-rollbar).

That's why I never pull all the way in to a parking lot space. Last thing I need is for some jackass to try and whip in and slam into my car.

Really? I got the Gaurdian. It was used and cheap but it seems to work great. I wish it was a little more "low profile" but since it's only on when I am going biking it's not a big deal.

Driving to North Van the other day I got like 50 looks of "WTF?!" It's awesome.

That one must have come out after I bought the Bones (~6-7yrs ago).

I liked it because it was easy to remove and fold up, but looks like the Guardian is this and more.


Only plus for me of the Bones is it also works well with SUVs and not just flat trunked cars. I've used it on the Integra hatch as well. Really versatile.

You got it backwards, even the Miata makes you look like a troll.

My other ride is a F-350 crewcab dually. Makes the miata look like a Hot Wheels.
