BakUp Backrest for the GT

Easy on, easy off. Good quality in fit and finish. I got the one for the passenger. The one for the rider seems to fit the same as it does on the RT.

This is what I have been looking for...

Where you bought yours from? Solid? How much?

Don't see gray seat with the Crystal white color often... Normally they only come with Graphite.

Just what I was looking for also. Manufactured by P&R Accessories, makers of the BakUp Backrest. Purchased from my local dealer. Finish is either black or gray. Mounting is solid and very easy. Suggested retail is $385.95, comparable to backrest for the LT and RT.

I am not sure though how well this would work for the rider considering the body angle.

Well, it's adjustable in both height and "pitch" or forward/back, so you can pinpoint its application pretty well...I thought the same considering the sport touring positioning on the GT, but was overwhelmingly surprised at its effectiveness.
