So simple to fit. I was worried about positioning and getting on and off the bike but it’s not a problem for myself or my pillion.
Just put one foot on the peg and over. Nice sturdy support bracket and with my after market seat it looks the part.
I have a muscle or nerve midway along the left side of my back that aches because I'm a natural "sloucher" on a motorcycle. This backrest forces me to sit upright as I should on an ST. I rode it a 100 miles today and the sore spot didn't bother, so I think there's hope. The only reason I didn't 5-star it is because it doesn't adjust fore and aft ( which I was aware of when I bought it), but very good product for the $.
Given the forward riding position on my ST1300, I was a little skeptical that this would make a difference. I haven't used this on a long ride yet, but on the daily commute the backrest is very comfortable, provides nice lower back support and does make a noticeable difference in riding comfort. Can't wait to test it out on the long haul.
