I have a friend that seems to own everything cool.....l you know you have a friend like that,or maybe it's you! Anyway, he has this bike mount he bought for his van and I thought to myself, "that's a brilliant idea for carrying my bike on my hack!!" The mount is called a Sea Sucker(www.seasucker.tv). Pretty cool device. You just need something that a suction cup can stick to. Each cup can handle 200 pounds!! So I tried it out on my setup........ Works like a charm!! Héctor 2002 DL1000 "Stella"
