  2. Heritage Back Rest 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2019

    Wish I bought this 4 years ago.

  3. Just what I needed. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Mar 2019

    I own a 2008 Heritage Softail. I have 3 herniated disks in my back and this backrest is perfect. I have only ridden with the backrest a few times, but I love being able to lean back and have the support. I sit forward a little bit, but not enough to make it uncomfortable or dangerous. It took 5 minutes to install. Took longer to get it out of the box. I look forward to my run from Omaha to Knoxville in July. Going to the Tail of the Dragon. Thank you Grasshopper.

    I ordered my back rest for my 2013 Heritage and had it within 5 days. The installation was extremely simple and I absolutely love it. I definitely recommend this back rest. Thanks so much for a great product.

  5. Good Quality, Comfortable Rider Seat Back Rest 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Dec 2018

    This seat back rest was easy to install and increases greatly the riding comfort of my 2016 Heritage Softail.

  6. Easy install, Price was right - 2013 Heritage Softail Classic Solo Setup 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Oct 2018

    Lots of padding. Install was quick. It pushes me more forward than I like and am hoping that it will wear into the position for me. Installation holes seem to be a little too wide (not talking about the length of the holes). Construction appears to be sturdy.

  7. Excellent design and very comfortable - 2015 Heritage Softail Classic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Oct 2018

    I bought the Grasshopper backrest after reading about it on the HD forums and watching some Youtube videos. Some backrest are complicated jungle gym contraptions, but the beauty of this is the simplicity of the design. It just plain works good and is extremely comfortable for an all day ride. It puts you right in the pocket of the seat and I felt like I was riding my Lazy Boy chair. It did push me a little farther forward than I normally sit, not an issue though, I just adjusted my bars to fit and it was perfect. Great job on this one guys!

  8. Driver Back Rest 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Sep 2018

    Simple installation. High quality appearance, Feels great. Moves me a little forward in the seat but hope with use it will compress just a little and be perfect. A lot better price and much easier installation than other options I saw.

  9. RECOMMENDED 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Sep 2018

    The service from order entry to receiving item was seamless and easy. I had a question on the right backrest, my seat has a riders chrome bar to hold onto. I called spoke to customer service told him what I had and he said no problem we will correct the order. Two days later I received the backrest, followed the install instructions which was easy and the backrest was installed. It matched the material and style of the riders seat, looks like it was bought in a set. Excellent experience!
