    That's what Tarpauline is for.

    Been carrying muddy bikes in my car (bought new two years ago) since I got it.
    Just use some kind of tarpaulin or similar.

    Also carry horse tack (for the wife), surfboards, a wet labrador and wet wetsuits, etc.

    If you can't carry stuff in a car, then what's the point in having one?!

    Used to carry all that clobber in a brand new R32 Golf with leather seats - again, no problems.

    FSR/Mark - Good to meet at last!

  • it was good thanks to you both.....shame its getting light at night now.. :cry:
  • LhanceLhance Posts: 88
    yes it was good . these mid week rides really break up the working week, thank you both.
    Shane i was looking at my light on the way back , the edges of the beam are further forward than yours, so no tunnel affect . I think you need a shade around the outside ( like a tube) if its reflective even better .
  • spookyleespookylee Posts: 51
    Sorry I couldn't make it :cry:

    Shane, thanks for the calls, I left my phone on silent after work and totally forgot....busy day !!
