  1. Riders backrest 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2018

    I purchased the riders backrest for my 2017 Heritage. It was easy as pie to install,but the pad was a little too thick for me. It made me sit too far forward. I feel like I'm sitting too far forward. It will take some getting used to. Other than the problems I mentioned. It is well made and should last the rest of my riding days.

  2. GOOD PURCHASE 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th May 2018

    It installs so easy a ten year old can do it.
    At first look and sit, I thought I wasted my money and it wouldn't be any good.
    I went for a hundred plus mile ride and I like it. Yep, it is a good buy that I would recommend.

  3. so far - it does the job! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st May 2018

    I have only ridden short rides so far with this product. Will be leaving in June for a week or so long road trip - so, that will be the real test for me.

    But, so far - I like it - it serves its purpose. Pushes me forward only slightly - so that is not a problem. It was a breeze to install - very quick and easy.

    Would be nice if it came set up with some kind of "securing" set screw or something to make it a bit more secure - So far - I like it

  4. so far... so good 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th May 2018

    I've had my seat back for a week. It was very easy to install, and looks great. It does fit a little loosely. Perhaps a "set screw" of some kind would help with that instead of "some electrical tape"

  5. Old Fart Heaven 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Apr 2018

    I had a factory backrest on my Streetglide, and when I bought the Heritage, it was the first thing I missed on those long spells on the bike. This set up is so easy to fit, and so functional for its price, I couldn't recommend it more highly. Thanks for keeping an old fart in the saddle for longer.

  6. Best investment for your bike 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2018

    Today I got the Grasshopper backrest for my 2015 Heritage. From the US to the Netherlands in just 12 days. Mounting on the bike took just five minutes an oh oh, how comfortable it is :-) Great.

  7. Amazing Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2018

    This is an excellent product that is very easy to install and super comfortable to ride with. Is well recommended for all those that would like to test their backs on those long highway cruises as well as have a comfortable city ride. Only a word of caution for those wanting a full seat, there is a slight compromise on the Heritage ‘17 but nonetheless, your bacck posture is better!!

  8. comfortable 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2018

    Looks good, and very easy to install. Backrest sits me forward a little more which is good for me, being I am a smaller woman. Can’t wait to use it on a cross country ride!

  9. Backrest on a 2009 Heritage Softail Classic 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Feb 2018

    The backrest was easy to install. The vinyl used on the backrest matchs the saddlebags not the seat. The product is sturdy, with strong looking stitching. I feel like I should be sitting back about ! 1/2" and I am going to rework the cushion a little bit. I am 6'-0" and 200 LBS. Overall it is a good product,

  10. they are the easiest and durable product. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jan 2018

    Great product and even though I received the wrong one they were eager to correct the hiccup. 5 stars to customer service and excellent products.
