    If you want to speak about Utility take a look at this photo of me carrying an 18 foot Kayak with swimming pool noodles and ratchet straps



    I ended up taking it back off and placed a movers blanket underneath so it would not scratch the roof and then I placed the Kayak back on top of the swimming pool noodles and drove off. This is when I purchased the kayak on craigslist and had a 2 hour drive to bring it back home on the Motorway/

    FYI: 3 noodles works better than 2 and get the thick, fat ones not the ones that are a dollar each, get the ones that are 3 dollars each

    I love my mirage es, I came from a scion iA, but they're so bloody expensive now a day! Filled up this morning, 7.9@2.77/gal averaged 42 mpg across the tank, and I tend to beat my car up haha

    Yes this is a shame. However, I did take off and sell my basket rack + fairing, so my mileage went back up.

    Nice photo comparison fc321. It made me think of how so many reviewers criticized the Mirage for a dated appearance. I wonder what they say about the Encore.
