I had a Thule roof rack system on my 2001 Honda Civic. The rack was pricey but solid. However the real downside to roof racks and recumbents is not just dealing with the roof loading aspect, but also the fact that recumbent/trike seats are wide mesh things that are wind sails. So realistically, if you are doing any long distance freeway driving, you have to remove the seat which is a time consuming PITA.

Nowadays I have an '87 Toyota pickup and an '87 Toyota van, both of which make transporting LWB recumbents a breeze. The non-breezy part is trying to find parts for the van!
