All the difference

The backrest works wonders. Looking to take my first long trip, this would have been impossible before with my back issues. I was a bit intimidated with taking apart the seat, but it went quicker than I thought. I just took tons of pics as I disassembled the seat, so I could put it back together. I bought the quick release bar, and it works great, and is stable, you just have to get it real tight. Customer support answered my questions quickly.

Love my Backrest

This is the 2nd bike I have gotten a Utopia backrest for. This one is just as awesome as the first. Installation took about an hour and is very easy.

Just installed Utopia backrest on my 2018 BMW K1600B. Easy to install and makes the ride much more comfortable. Wife loves the pouch on the back.This backrest looks like original equipment for the bike.

LLO BOB AND UTOPIA CREW!! It has been 4+ years since I had my backrest installed by Utopia. To all my Canadian riders out there this product is simply "THE BEST" in quality, design and installation on the market today. I had it installed on my 2012 BMW k1600GT (see Utopia's website) and it was a life-saver to have it on my ride from Vancouver Canada to Palm Springs California and back again. Do yourself a huge favor and get this backrest. It will save your spine and muscles regardless of what you ride plain and simple!! THANKS SO MUCH!!!
