  1. What a difference! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Mar 2019

    I bought this backrest summer of 2018 for my 04 Roadstar 1700. What a difference it makes! The install was pretty straightforward; I didn't have any problems with loose fit or making field adjustments.

    Riding my bike with a backrest has made the miles much more comfortable than they had been, and that makes riding a lot more enjoyable.

    Tonight I'm buying another one; this one for my son's Honda VTX.

  4. looks good 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Sep 2015

    this is my second backrest.lost the fist one on the road last month.my fault,was in a hurry and didn`t secure it in the holder.this one fits into the holder better,no need for tape but it sits too high above the driver seat.I had to cut 1 inch off the end and move the mounting bracket closer to the drivers seat.after a little grinding and filing to smooth out the edges and a coat of black paint it was all good.

  5. Driver backrest 4 Star Review

    For $105 this is a pretty good deal. Sure better than the alternatives at more than twice the cost. I have used it just a little bit so far, but I like it so far. I will know more after a 200 mile trip; but it has got to help with butt/back fatigue. For me I had to bend the support forward a bit - it was too far back for my comfort. It seems perfect for me now. It was easy to bend in a large vise. It looks nice and matched the studded seats well on my RS Silverado. They shipped it fast to me. All considered I am please with my purchase.

    PS: gave it 4 stars because it is not as nice as the $250+ backrests; so I could not honestly say it is the best ever. But is it well worth what it cost from these folks.

  7. Excellent Product Excellent Price 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2013

    The backrest arrived and was exactly as advertised. It was a 10 minute install and fit perfect. A short test ride and the backrest was very comfortable. I'm looking forward to a 2 week motorcycle trip this month. The backrest will make the 4000 mile trip a lot more enjoyable.

    Daughter is now ordering one for her bike
