Excellent! Thank you so much. This looks great. I just fear that the roof racks you have on your car are wider than the current one for the Raven MS? I'm not sure the new roof racks will take 4 bike mounts?
Thanks. I ordered the Tesla one direct from Tesla. It looks like it will only fit 3 bikes.
Yeah, pre-Tesla it was the same for us: hitch with bikes + roof box. I really hope the new MS will have a factory option for a tow hitch. I really prefer that for transporting bikes. As I lease the car, I can't put an aftermarket tow hitch in...Nice, we’re also heading to Tuscany if all goes well this year. But without anything on the roof. And we’ll rent bikes there.
Taking bikes on vacation is something I did with our previous Audi, on the hitch, with a large box on the roof. With the Tesla (our old 85 has a huge frunk), no need for the roof box. But the bike is a no no for me.
Also partially because on the last vacations with those bikes, we did not really use them. I’m certain our mileages was bad but of course in a diesel you don’t pay attention. I’m much more sensitive to CO2 and whatnot efficiency now.
No regrets here about not taking our bikes: they are expansive and that journey is probably taking a toll on them. The economy on fuel balances the bike rental somehow.
