Default Drivers back rest is on

Well today I got the back rest I asked Santa for. It took about 5 minutes to install and it looks and feels great.

I love that! I'm hoping to get one before riding season. Let me know how you like it after a while.

Hey Jo in Cal, that looks great and no seat cutting. What brand is it?

Pretty lousy website as I was unable to find out the prices or what it took to mount the back rests. Did you have to drill your own holes? I have saddle bag frames mounted to the two screws already and was wondering if i would need to drill a third hole on each side. What keeps it from moving when you are leaning against it? Looks sweet though.

Congrats! I bought mine from the same place a few months back. While I don't like the look as well with the backrest it sure is kind to my lower back!

The price is $130.00 and $15.00 shipping. Look at the side picture and you can see how it mounts, 2 brackets, one on each side, take out 1 bolt and put the bracket on and put the bolt back in, Couldn't be easier. I like it, others may not, that why there are so many different seats and back rests and motorcycles out there, not everyone has the same taste. Jarold, the guy that makes it is a nice guy, he will call you and get all your information and answer any questions you might have.
