Awwwww yeahhhhhhh!!!





Whatcha guys think ;)

i actually really like the way roof racks look with just 2 bars across. the basket didnt look THAT bad added, but the bags a bit goofy :p

made it home to cali with 2 other people and all our gear though!

easiest to get:

-Yakima Q Towers (which are the plastic clamps, even though they sound like actual towers)
-Yakima Q82 clips (which are metal pieces that are vehicle specific)
-whatever length crossbars you want (the bars that go across the roof come in a few lengths)

and from there you buy yakima items that fit Qtowers

you can find Q towers all over craigslist, but you will have to buy the clips new ($78 new from REI or G.I. Joes or other places of the sort)
you better call ahead of time because most people have every clip BUT the Q82 because they only fit g20s and elantras and something else weird...

the basket was the cheapest i could find, its called "basketcase" by yakima, it was $109

the bag is a Thule Quest (any bag will work if you have the basket really, they jhust strap down.

Yakima's Destination7 bag fits great at Yakima's Basketcase, I got mine but I bought at Mexico @ much higher price.

And Fairing is great reducing the noise, I just bought 'em, it's a great upgrade for your Yakima stuff.

i got a fairing, but didnt put it on, it was too difficult to get attached and wasnt gonna go over the bag at all so i didnt figure it would do much

I hate when it whistle, it stops when you put the fairing.

Of course it doesn't go over the bag but put it, it works.

with it? 400 miles on a tank and a quarter... i dunno

usually when i make the trip its EXACTLY 1 tank to 400 miles, which is like 27.5 or so, and a lot of those miles are uphill at HIGH rpms. theres a lot of passes on the way, so cruising i must get really good mpg
