Rule #25 will probably never apply to me.... :(

as an aside, when i carry bikes on my car - at any speed above 50mph - I can literally see the fuel gauge dropping as i drive!

Absolutely beautiful GTV you have there. I had one back in the 80's but sadly it rotted away :shock:

I love when I see 3 or 4 high end carbon bikes hanging out on some $50 bike rack at the back of the car.
