Backrest options and opinions
Looking for opinions on backrests. I've read different things pro and con for each. SO, what do you guys run?
Bakup; $400 is a bit much but looks OK, have heard people say that it feels flimsy to the passenger. I only want passenger BTW.
There was or is (discontinued maybe?) a "Stealth" backrest, which seems to mount UNDER the rack, which I like. Looks like it would be sturdy, unsure on adjustment, or price.
RCU: Looks sturdy, good price, maybe a bit more functional for tying bags to it, which I feel any of them could do, some better than others. I think the others look a bit nicer and the RCU looks like the bar might actually be felt on the passengers back. COLOR I think is only black, for a grey seat a grey rest would be nice. Gooder price on the RCU though.
Other options I'm missing? I'd really just like one that attaches to the stock rack and doesn't cover it, if possible. Not sure where the RCU attaches.
(wife says she gets a backrest before I get a CB windshield!)
