They hire drivers with a blind left eye.

I'm not saying you can't do it, just that you need to do it properly. If your side-mount rack is well beyond the body and doesn't have lights, or blocks the mirror, that's not done properly. Unless you loosen and turn the handlebars each time, a typical bike is wider than most of those glass racks.

The handlebars on many bikes are certainly an issue - if the go over the roof (or truck box) the side-mount scheme gets a lot more attractive.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

This is a compromise. Load from the side of the tug and it lifts to the roof!

Thanks Donna - that's what I was thinking of, but I didn't know of a specific model or supplier.
