just got a new cage

and I can't wait to do something cycling related with it. as a surprise bonus it has a receiver hitch, so if I want to, I can use that kind of bike rack. the kids made it clear that they would not accept anything other than another family mover. the blue tooth for the cell phone is very cool. the highway gas mileage is better than my last vehicle if this dashboard display is accurate.

Since they had input on the decision, perhaps they should help with paying for it as well? Have them wash your bike(s) whenever they wash that Subie.
