I use mine for hauling stuff! Seriously, though, so far I've used it to haul a king sized bed from seattle to portland, a king sized mattress, and some 4x8 sheets of plywood. Next big road trip, I'll probably buy a roof box for luggage!
I do, however, recommend the Thule Tracker II system over the OEM Honda; it's cheaper, and so are it's accessories. Check out my install here.
I really wanna get a fat, round, tubular rack like the Nissan XTerra has. Something that I can show off a little more, and maybe slap a Honda sticker on. The Honda rack is too flat and small. It looks like a mini van rack! LOL
