    Good Value

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

    This backrest was as easy to install as they say it is and is very comfortable - I love it!

    Grasshopper Motorcycle Driver Backrest

    This is a fine product. I already had experience with a Grasshopper backrest for my previous bike, and consequently being pleased with it, ordered another one to fit my new bike. They are well built and take only minutes to install. I'd highly recommend this product.
