First Class Fitment 2013

LoS Garage took a little road trip last weekend from Chicago to New Jersey for Canibeat’s First Class Fitment show. We drove the LoS support vehicle, an AirRex bagged Honda Fit. From day one, I wanted the Fit to be able to trailer our scooters. So with a hitch installed and a trailer securely attached, GDLK and Kaiju were strapped down and ready to make this 800 mile journey to the east.

From Chicago, we passed thru Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania before arriving at New Jersey. Driving a Fit with a trailer was an “interesting” experience. Especially uphill, we had to use sport mode and switch to 4th gear many times and on one incline 3rd gear. I never knew things were so hilly over here… or maybe the Fit just needs some more power. In any case… even while towing an extra 900lbs (trailer + bikes) the car (with 3 guys inside) got 20+ MPG! Not too shabby…

And that wraps up last weekend at FCF 2013. There were a ton of nice cars and bikes and we could not possibly capture everything! Nothing beats going to a show and supporting your city/crew. Meeting new people and putting faces to online personas. Support the scene. Peace out.
