nope, anyone who actually bikes knows that hitch mounts are the way to go.

hence why I sold roof rack to buy hitch rack.

it wont earn you hipster scene points but its so much more useful!

plus hitch racks come with built in bottle openers.

I have nothing against hit racks in general. If you already have a hitch then absolutely use a hitch rack. But the ST comes with such a pretty center exit exhaust and I'd hate to see somebody have to lose that just for bikes

Nice! I may actually show up. Might see if I can get my father in law to come out. He's a vette guy. Has a 60's stingray with side pipes he restored sitting in his garage. Beautiful car. He won't take it out tho because he doesn't want to pay the insurance on it.

Switch to dual round tips and have the hitch right in the middle of them so you keep center exit plus get to do hitch?

Looks good!!

For the ST exhaust debate. I could always get a Roush bumper or something, and go that route too.
