Who is the manufacturer of this bike rack?

Here are pics of my bike rack setup, give you some ideas:

The rack could be tilted down and turn 180 degrees so the bikes are far away from the SUV rear door, which I could open freely. It is ok to have the tanks there. I take mine off because of front heavy issue on my TV max 350 lbs tongue.

Keep posting your trips, I enjoy reading them.[/QUOTE]

You just have to keep rubbing your 1st trip in. Knowing I won't get mine in until the weather breaks and I can go pick up the little darling. Except for some minor glitches sounds like things went well.

What I have read everywhere, including manufactures web sites is to run the tires at the listed maximum pressure. The higher the pressure, the less the sidewalls will flex and the less the tire will heat up. Down here, when it is 100 degrees out, the road surface is blazing hot from the sun and traffic is zooming by at outrageous speeds, heat is the enemy to tire life and towing safety.
