Don't judge me by my welding

I've spent the weekend using some metal that's been leaning against the workshop wall to make a bike carrier for the Caddy. The big hoop of metal was already welded that way but I fabricated the two posts with the quick release axles. The whole thing hooks into the tie-downs at the back of the bed, anyway, the test will be if the bikes stay upright!

Slowly moving forwards to look backwards... a bit...

This week I've changed the mirrors on the SR. While these are much smaller than the ones I put on originally, they stick out further and I now get more than a view of the back of my hands. It will take some of the aspect of Russian Roulette out of lane changes.
