      Stealership Woes!

      So I have had one frustrating morning. Back in May I purchased the VW OE base carrier bars and ‘Barracuda’ bike attachment so I can take my bike with me cross country from Virginia to Washington...

      There used to be a thread floating around the Vortex about the install. I looked at it and decided that was not for me. I took it to my VW dealer and they installed it for me. Like 100 bucks or...

      well i must say i have never noticed that before but it does make sense as the turn signal stalk does disengage if you turn the wheel enough in one direction or the other. this would indicated there...
