    For the most part I haven't gone very long distances with my bike on the back of my truck (rear bike
    rack), but this summer this will change, starting in March.

    March in Minnesota can be full of snow, rain, salt, ice, gravel etc.

    Should a person "bag" their bike on a rear rack for extended trips?

    I have seen very few options for this. Does anyone do this? I can't imagine 10 hours in salt and
    snow would be good for any kind of bike... ?

    Never seen such a thing, what would you bag it with, a couple of garbage bags?

    I have, in fact very nicely fitted ones...... usually on the back of mobile-homes
    (Winnebago's, etc.)

    As long as you don't block the view of your car's tail lights, I don't see any other problems.

    After all, a bag isn't going to do any good if the guy behind you can't see your brake lights and
    rear ends the car... wrecking the very bike you intended to protect...
