I've been lookin for a drivers backrest for a while now, and while there are other options out there, they are very expensive. The grasshopper backrest is a great bang for your buck. Installation is literally 2 minutes, only one screw. So far, it feels solid and well made. I love the fact that it goes on and off in the blink of an eye. I'm 5'8", and I find that it sits me about 2 inches closer. For under $100, this is a great addition to make the miles more comfortable.

So far so good. Shipping was quick, install took minutes and the first few rides have been good. Looking forward to many more.

I just got mine this week and have only used it once going back and forth to work about 50 miles. I am leaving this weekend for a 2500 mile trip so the real test is yet to come.
Took 5 business days to arrive, ordered on Thursday morning and it arrived USPS on the following Wednesday.
Super easy to install and so far pretty comfortable. I also feel the cost was really reasonable for the product.
I do wish it were a tad more rigid when resting against it, but, with how it installs, I do not think there would be any way to resolve that issue. (I am also 6'3" 240lbs)
This product looks nice, my only reservation is that it is stapled together on the underside and not stitched like the rest of it. You cannot see the them when installed and they will probably hold up just fine.
Overall seems like a great product and I would recommend. After my trip, if I feel differently I will re-review.

I had been thinking about getting a drivers backrest for a few years and always remember to look into it just before my week long bike trip when it's too late. This year I ordered it while there was still snow on the ground. The installation was simple and I'll have to check if the bracket remains tightly fastened to the fender, but I sat on it and I think I'm going to love this thing. I gave it 5 stars because the quality and feel were a bargin at $99, so even without using it for a long ride yet, I think it's a great product. If my opinion changes after using it more, I will update.

Thank you for your quick delivery ... Got it JUST in time to USE on a 300 mile trip ... Easy to install ... I am 5'8" 170lbs ... I found it VERY comfortable and relaxing ... GREAT add-on for longer time in "The Seat" ... I used 2' risers on handlebars ... Bought optional POCKET which should be very handy ... WISH you had added a velcro closure ... Hoping that it holds up ... will let you know!
BEST for the MONEY! Buy with Confidence!
