I had one on both the RG & EG, and loved them on long trips. Highly recommend.

Not only yes, but HELL YES!

In Massachusetts language, yes, yes, fuckin-a YES

Have one on my E-Glide, and I'll never have another bike without one... 'cept my Dyna bar hopper.

Have one, love it, except..........

In the summer, it just causes me to sweat where it makes contact. Shirt gets all wet, back starts to itch after a while. So I take it off when it's hot out. For short trips, not needed. For long trips, I lean against luggage. For intermediate trips (couple of hours) I use it, but not when it's hot.

Thank's, good to hear people like em... I had an Adjustable Riders Backrest on my Heritage and loved it too. But it looks like the Harley one has no offset adjustment just up and down. Lou sent a link to a AfterMarket offset screw a while back, but it is known to tear the seats.

Did you guy's buy the Harley Adjustable with the little wire contraption? Or the fixed (non-adjustable)?

I had the fixed,.....but it does have a small minor screw adjustment in the back of the seat that allows a little,....and I mean a little angle difference.

Get it, Eddie! You won't regret it. Adjustable is nice on long runs, as you can change the angle on the fly.

Even OLD and FAT guys (like me) love them

I've got the Harley adjustable one. Adjusts up and down, forward and aft. Got a little lever on the left side for adjusting.

I gotta agree. Great for longer trips.

Mine's the non-adjustable one. The distance from the front of the seat is "fixed", but it does tilt forward to accommodate the curve of your back and to allow passengers ease of getting on and off the bike.

The Mustang 3 piece is what I've got. Best setup I've ever had. I also have the offset bracket.

I think that they make a small one more for keeping you from sliding off the back than providing any real back support.

sorry ...

Old thread, but valuable to new peeps.

Coonassjoe, I dunno if HD makes one, but I've seen backrests on Dynas. Not sure who makes them.
