I have a Thule Speedway 3 and it mounts via straps and hooks. No hitch on my Vue. I will be going out for the first time to do a day ride and leaving my vehicle at a trail head. Do you guys leave the racks on or take them off and shove them inside the vehicle? I never gave it much though, and where I will be going is a safe area but you just never know.
And as far as bikes, how do you guys deal with the Anxiety of leaving a 2k+ awesome bike somewhere out of your site. Even with a cable on it. And is there a way to insure your bikes in case of theft?
I don't think I will be paranoid about my cheapo ride, and if it got stolen it would be a quick excuse to go move up with my wife feeling sorry for me. But when I finally do I think I would be fairly paranoid to leave it anywhere.
