    What hitch and rack are you using? That's an interesting looking bike rack. Do you like how it works?

    The hitch is a Draw-tite class 1 sportsframe hitch. It took about 20 minutes to install. The bike rack is a Reese Explorer Sportwing 2 bike carrier. My bike is a little lower than I would like, it's only about a foot off the ground. But the view from my rear window is unobstructed and I really like that. If anything I may modify it to raise my bike up higher, but for now it's good.

    Be careful going up driveways or any steep-ish inclines. That bike seems a little too close to the ground.

    Was it caused by a stone?

    Heading back home after a visit to my sister's, Mitsuko's first long road trip, about 700 miles round trip. I was impressed by her road manners, performance and how comfortable the ride and seat was. The 45mpg average was icing on the cake.
