Off Topic (Non-Honda) / Pikes Peak
« Last post by Jocko on July 19, 2018, 10:13:34 PM »
I have been fascinated by Pikes Peak for years. For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, it is a US hill climb, which has been going since 1916. It is held on Pikes Peak, in Colorado, and is 12 and a bit miles, up a mountain. Up until 2002 it was a dirt track, but it has now been paved. Every thing from bikes and rally cars, to SUVs and Nascar motors.
I have competed many times, on my Xbox, and have still not learned the 156 turns. It starts at over 9,000 ft and climbs over 4,000 feet.
For a fair amount of time the record was held by Sebastien Loeb,in a Peugeot 208 T16 but this year Volkswagen and Romain Dumas have set a new record.
With 1,000 ft drops it is an epic race.
All three videos are worth a watch.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: 2013 Jazz - Drivers door aperture seal.

I find my dashboard very reflective and annoying. It must be because the sun is so low in the sky, here in Fife!

The Civic is much better than Jazz for not having annoying reflections, best thing is a piece of black velvet on dash,  which will kill all reflections stone dead.  Polarising sunglasses also very good,  but can cause problems with making instruments a bit hard to see and rainbow colours on some clear plastic covers.

I have these and find them great for driving in general, they rest the eyes from all sorts of glare.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Honda Jazz. 29er Moutain Bike inside? It fits!

This is where a folding bike makes life easier. I've just bought a 24" Tern Node and it will fit either behind the front passenger seat (rear seat base tipped up) or standing up in the boot. I would expect the bike would similarly fit in a Jazz.

The bike was supplied by CH White in Malmesbury who modified the gearing for a very reasonable price. Excellent service and highly recommended.

Good Idea :)
Ive got a 2013 jazz also.(Same colour as yours)
Just wondering from your first picture though....I was wondering if you dropped the "magic seat" behind drivers seat down......lowered the back part of the seat down so its flat....then wondering if you may be able to lift the front forks of the  bike up onto the folded down seat to enable you to be able to shut rear passenger door.(Perhaps handlebars may rub on headlining though).
Not sure if this would work.

I still think the length of the bike would be too long, with the rear wheel fitted to put the bike in sideways behind the front seats Probably due to the fact that it's a large sized from, with 29" wheels. However I'm probably going to get myself a soft bike bag, and a couple of wheel bags. At least I know I can get the bike behind the front seats with the rear seats in tall mode, if I take the wheels off the bike.  Not sure that would work with my road & touring bikes though, as they have full mudguards...  However seeing as I won't be carrying passengers, putting the bike in the boot with the rear seats flat, front wheel off and seat post out will probably be the easiest way.

 If I go away on holiday with the bike, then putting it in the bike bag behind the front seats would give me an empty boot for luggage etc.   :D

Certainly cheaper to spend a few minutes taking wheels etc off the bike, than getting a tow bar & tow bar bike rack fitted :-)

Thanks for that link, Culzean. 

I found a bottle of Autoglym vinyl and rubber care in the shed, so I've applied that using a soft cloth to all the rubber seals on the doors & boot. They certainly look a bit newer now! And the new seal matches the rest colour wise now as it looks less new and grey, and now nice and black.   8)

Will get some of that Armour all stuff in semi matt though, as the dashboard reflection is a bit annoying!

Apart from wondering what this thread has to do with the MK3 Jazz, no it does not annoy or worry me. ::)

The cost will not be worrying Lewis Hamilton.
He has just been awarded a contract renewal with Mercedes worth up to 80M for two years, that's 30M  a year plus bonuses.
I know it's a dangerous sport but 80M ??

Vic.
