I am presently running either naked or w/ the Yakima bars, the "basketcase" offset to the drivers side happens to center EXACTLY on my black stripe), and the fairing(s).
I got both the new-style 50" and the "old-style" box shape. I randomly put BOTH on together. Looks interesting . . .
Been on there a couple weeks.
W/ the rack on, the fuel economy isn't as good, to I try to remember to remove it for long trips I don't plan to use it.
W/ it on, though, the carrying capacity is significantly expanded. Last week, my fam traveled to Myrtle Beach (about 3.5-4 hours for us). My wife actually pushed to take Firefly over her Dodge Caravan. We have 3 kids, one of which is in a car seat and the other 2 are under 10. Everything fit fine for a week. The main thing on the roof was only an inflatable mattress and the baby's portable crib. All else for a family was inside. So much came with us in the B that we maxed-out one of those hotel carts.
My wife loved it so much that she kept "stealing" Firefly all week, taking it on FOUR trips in the week since- to Clemson, Atlanta, and the North Carolina mountains twice.
