    Backrest for 2018 Herritage Classic

    Posted by Bob Deutsch on 2nd Jul 2020

    I have now been using the backrest for about three months and I’m very happy with it. It was very easy to install. The simplicity is beautiful. The pad comes on and off easily, but is very secure. I often start my ride off without it and then add it on for extra back support later in the ride. I am very happy with this product and feel it was money well spent.

    Quick Release Rider Backrest for HD Softail

    Posted by Timothy Freese on 26th Jun 2020

    Looking for something to add comfort for riding longer distances + support my lower back and this was the answer to both. Grasshopper Ltd's got this dialed-in and their backrest is top notch! Super easy installation and looks great on the bike. Also, does an excellent job giving me the added back support to ride longer and with well needed comfort. Superb job Grasshopper Ltd.!

    I bought this rider backrest after a 4 day trip without one. It has made a huge difference in riding comfort. It was easy to install and I can removed it if i don't want it on. Stores perfectly in my saddlebag. I am a very happy customer!
