I just got this for my ACE and I am so thrilled. It is comfortable and high quality.I can't wait for some of my upcoming cruises with actual back support. It is a bit of an understatement to say the back seat will be a snug fir after putting this on. However it is well worth the struggle. Other wise installation was easy. Thanks!!
Installation was easy. Instructions were decent. After 150 mile ride, found that the pad is to high for me, and I have to lean back too far to ride comfortably. Needs adjustable positioning for custom fit. A simple set screw or slot with thumb screw would be usefull.
One of the things I like about this backrest is that it attaches to the stock driver seat. (I ride solo most of the time and use a studded bib to cover the rear fender) All the other backrests out there mount to the passenger seat, which doesn't allow me that option. The backrest is made from very high quality parts and it fits like a glove. It's also extremely comfortable!
Because I have a bad back, it makes it very difficult for me to go on long rides,.....but after installing this one on my bike, I've been able to go on 3 "all day" rides without any pain. This is by far the best purchase I've made since buying my bike. Thanks Grasshopper Limited, I'm now able to really enjoy the freedom I find out on the road!!!
