Passenger Backrests

Looking for some feedback on the BakupUSA passenger backrests. A bit on the expensive side and wondering if they are worth it. So, fill me in: how is the fit, adjustment, comfort etc..............thanks.

I know you only asked for feedback on the Bakup. But for others who opened the thread - I got a Pirate's Lair Stealth about 1.5 years ago. Girlfriend absolutely loves it. So do I, because when I'm riding solo and don't want it on there, it comes off in about 10 seconds, and the mounting plate looks very clean atop the luggage rack.

I don't believe it will fit on the Adventure.

No connection what so ever to Pirates Lair. They were very good to work with.

It's all good. I'll take feedback on any product, including topcases.

I like the way you can fold it down when not in use. Got a pic?

+1 on the pirates lair stealth back rest. Well made, vinyl is a perfect match for the stock seat and it's easily removable

Just put a drivers Backup backrest on (no long rides yet to fully test it - but it feels good), wife has one that came with the top box -Jesse Luggage. The only complaint she has is that it's not really adjustable; we ended up putting an AirHawk2 on the seat and that helped her.
