Loaded 2 Go!
Ready to drive 1250 miles headed for Acadia National Park. This is our heavily loaded 2003 Honda Pilot with four touring kayaks on top, four mountain bikes on the back, four people and their gear for a week. Not asking too much of a vehicle with 150,000 miles on the odometer! A rolling advertisement for Yakima and Honda. The kayaks were supported with a Big Stack holding the two center boats on their sides and combinations of Landshark Saddles and Gunwale Brackets holding the outer boats hull down on 78 inch bars. Estimated weight approaching 200 lbs. The standard Honda side rails I believe are rated at 165 lbs, so this was a bit of a stretch. The boats were absolutely rock solid and experienced very little to no slippage due to straps loosening. I was very impressed. I did eventually loop straps through the front and rear handles on the boats. Probably unnecessary, but made me feel better. No whistling or humming from the straps. Only when hitting big bumps or in the turbulence of passing semi trucks did the rack show any flex. FWIW: initially I was concerned that the Big Stack couldn't handle four touring boats, two on each side, so I strapped the two outer boats down. Hindsight, I am fairly confident now that the Big Stack would secure all four. I would add a belly band around the boats for back up. The bikes are sitting on a HoldUp and HoldUp Plus 2. Heavy, sturdy, and very easy to use. You could load four bikes in as little as four minutes. That simple. I'd estimate the bikes weigh about 120 lbs. The rack? Maybe 50-60lbs? It did put a lot of weight out there, compressing the rear suspension more than my 2700 lb pop-up camper does. I really liked the addition of the red flag and two flashing lights for night driving. The bike rack did sway up and down on any big hits (potholes, road seams, bridge transitions) and that translated into making the Pilot bob a bit too. Disconcerting, but the rack never loosened, nor did the bikes. I did suffer a flat(tening) bike tire that required a few pumps at every fuel stop to keep it gripped by the rack. Bothersome, but not enough to get me to patch or replace the tube. When not in use, the rack folded up very nicely. However, I struggled to simultaneously release the lock pin AND lift to pivot the rack up. Be sure to take an 11 yr old son on all trips to help. Gas mileage was atrocious. I knew it would be bad, but a 15.4 mpg average shocked me. High tank was 18 mpg when cruising around the park. The lowest tank was 13 mpg on I-80 in western Pennsylvania. Two years ago, we did a 6000 mile trip out west and, loaded every bit as heavy with a hitchhauler but nothing strapped on top, we averaged 23.1 mpg (High of 26, low of 18). Tires: I am currently using Yokohama Geolanders. A decent, rugged, SUV tire, but I don't believe they are as fuel efficient as the stock Goodyear Integrity tires were. Interestingly, the Geolanders would begin the day reading 35 psi and after 3-4 hours of travel on the highway, the rears would read 40 psi and the fronts 37-38 psi. Never went higher than that. I would have bled off some air pressure if they had.... Lastly, I felt most comfortable driving at or just slightly below the posted maximum speed limit (65 mph most places we went). In my many years and miles of driving, I have never witnessed such angry drivers. And, not all directed at me. I pretty much just sat in the slow lane and slogged along. Autos caused most of the problems -- especially tailgating me and my colorful missile launcher, but the professional drivers (trucks and delivery van drivers) were over the top. They simply refused to back out of the throttle or move over a lane when myself or any other auto didn't reach the end of the ramp at their speed. Yeah, my bad for being slow and cautious. I know, I was trying. Thanks for the help. It was early-vacation-season for us cagers. I can't imagine what it will be like when the full(er) travel season is underway. Everybody, take a deep breath, take your time, be careful. I had the 150k service done after my return. The original rear shocks and front struts were replaced during the previous year and checked out okay in spite of the abuse... We were the most overloaded vehicle I saw in 2500 miles of travel. Not proud of that. Okay, maybe a bit. Oh, we had a great time in Acadia!
Yakima 135mm Kludge
I thought it'd be cool to have a rack that can be used with my 135mm front-axled Jones fork and a normal (100mm) fork without doing any adjustments or mods, not have anything dangly, and still be lockable. So I took a Yakima Steelhead bike rack and mounted an old school Yakima "clamp" rack to the tail end of it. The Jones end worked fine, but on the other end, the Steelhead side is not clamped to a bar. It was wobbly as hell. I'd never mount a bike on there with this setup. Looking for a better kludge :)
