I always buy UTOPIA backrest for my bikes. Smaller company, awesome service and quality. Around $200
Hah, I forgot about this thread. Thanks. They didn't make one for the valk back when I was looking. I ended up switching to a corbin gunfighter seat so now, I don't have an option for any backrest.Bakup driver's backrest. Attaches to driver's seat. Awesome quality and fitment.
Yeah I don't understand why they don't offer a backrest option with the gunfighter. I would have tried the meancity option but my bike is my only ride and I just couldn't have that much downtime waiting for the seat to get back to me. About to do a 600 mile ride on my corbin, this will be the real test.That was one of the things I learned while researching. I was going to go with a Corbin. I liked the gunfighter and would have bought one if it would have had the backrest option. The 2up seat they have can't be any better than my stock seat redone by Mean City. Adding the Utopia is gravy I hope.
Do you have any pics with it installed? I might be interested in switching back to stock seat to make this work.I installed the utopia back rest. It took less than an hour to adjust it while riding to find the sweet spots. I was out for 3 hours last night. By the time I was getting close to home I was convinced it was worth it and very nice. Once I got home I almost fell over trying to dismount. I'm back to its just way too large. The quality is nice and it seems like quality work. I'm thinking about modifying the pad down to size. Otherwise it is great to have on the bike.
