This backrest is a great addition to my bike. It makes those longer rides very comfortable. The delivery was within a week of the order, and the install time was less than 15 minutes.

Installed in 10 minutes and feels great. The best deal on the market.

Ordered this on a recommendation from someone else,and they were right.It was an easy installation and for the price is easily as nice as some more expensive ones on the market

When I bought this it was for 1 main reason, the price. I have to admit after seeing what I received in the mail I did not see a $100 item but much much more. This looks as good or better than the expensive ones on the internet. When I put this on my bike I experienced 2 issues. I sent an email asking their opinion and not only did I get their professinal opinion, I also was informed they would be making me another bracket that would lower the backrest as well as lean it back some. These were both personnal preferences not problems with the backrest. My advice to anyone considering ordering from Grasshopper LTD is "Why haven't you already clicked the order button?"
