    How to haul in a Honda Ridgeline?

    I was wondering if any Honda Ridgeline owners could suggest the best way to haul 2 MTN bikes? Right now they've just been lying down on top of each other . I checked out RecRac, but it won't fit. So any help would be appreciated.

    do you have any place to hook ratchet straps too? I stand mine up and hook a strap to each side of the handle bars and tighten it down. doesnt go anywhere.

    Have you looked at the Saris Bones rear-mount bike racks? Of all the racks I've ever tried (including a very expensive Thule roof rack) it is by far the best. It mounts very easily on a variety of vehicle types and can be quickly installed and uninstalled. I use mine on a Nissan Altima and a Kia minivan and it works absolutely perfectly on both vehicles.

    Mount them to a board in the bed. Or buy a real pickup

    If you have a hitch there are various hitch racks. Thule makes great truck rack, a little pricey though. i managed to get one used on e-bay. It goes over the top of the rail and then the length is adjusted to fit snugly. Bedhead attaches directly to bed or rails (or toolbox.) Good luck.

    One guy put a couple of locking fork mounts into the front of the bed.

    The full blog entry gushing about the ridgeline (with better pics and a bit of a write-up about the locking fork mounts) is here
