O.M.Gosh... I have searched high and low for a good backrest that would not require to me either break the bank nor require me to purchase and install a completely new seat. This product is absolutely hands down the best "add-on" accessory I have purchased to date. Install was very easy and took maybe 10-15 minutes. Took longer to find the right tools to remove the bolts holding my seat in. Additionally, the quality of the finish and stitching is superb and 100% matches my existing seat. The true test is how my back feels. After 25-30 miles of riding, I always had to start stretching my back out during the ride. Now I am finding that I only have to stretch the legs once the 100+ mile ride is complete. :D Thank you for making an amazing product. I will recommend this to all my fellow riders.
just what the doctor ordered. Install was simple and the driver's backrest does exactly what it is suppose to do ..save my back!
Delivery was fast. It only took 20 minutes to install. (I could have done it quicker, but I wasted 5 minutes looking for some flat washers to shim the driver's seat mounting braket so it'd bolt back onto the seat flush.) I really like it, but wish the mounting bracket could be a bit stiffer. It flexes a little too much for my complete comfort. I realize though, that the limiting factor here is the location of the seat mount and a lack of other supporting hardware nearby.
