Sage advice - I forgot this golden rule on my previous vehicle and damaged the bike, car and garage in one fell swoop.
GeeTee - no offense intended, I meant that in reviewing the entire thread it's got to be pretty confusing to make a definitive choice. Lots of folks have had good and bad experiences with different manufacturers. I've had great success with Thule - they've even mailed me free replacement parts for a ski rack that was over 10 years old. Maybe the conclusion should be YMMV. And you make a good point - if a thief really wants your bike he's gonna get it - lock or no lock. In my view locks are for the honest people.
