  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. Driver Back Rest 5 Star Review

    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.

  4. 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!

  9. Great Rider Backrest 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Aug 2018

    Very easy to install rider backrest. Slide mount lets you take the backrest off and on easy. Short hops around town I leave it off. Having the support on longer trips is great.
