    Very easy to install and is very comfortable riding down the road. Worth every penny.

    Drivers back rest

    The bracket is too large. When I insert the backrest into the bracket it has too much play and is too easy to pull out. I'm working on a plastic insert to snug it up....

    Easy installation and as advertised. The fit didn't seem great, but tightening down the screws pulled the backrest into a pretty good location.
