    That's actually a reason I went with couplers - it lets me (theoretically) pack my bike into a suitcase looking container which should hopefully dodge any question about "what's in that box". On the...

    +1 - that's the same set up I have for my truck. The other thing I have going for leaving it on the truck is that the rack itself is fire-engine red, was made in a high school metal-working class,...

    I don't preach, I ride. If people (friends/family) are interested they'll ask, if they're not all my yammering will do is turn them off to the idea completely.
