Let’s face it, we all know the benefits of riding with a backrest, but hate the additional clunky brackets. Not to mention the loss of leg room for the passenger. K and G Cycles has stumbled upon a solution that will have you ordering one before you finish reading this.
Until now if we wanted a Rider Backrest for our Honda GL1500 Gold Wing, we had to mount a superstructure to our ride and deal with it. Big Bike Parts has come released a new “Made in the USA” Smart Mount through the seat backrest and is now available for the GL1500 Gold Wing. This new backrest attaches through the seat and only the backrest pad and support arm sit above the surface of the driver’s seat. This innovative design eliminates all side mounting brackets and the backrest hoop, delivering a clean look and more leg room for the rear passenger. This new system utilizes Big Bike Parts copyrighted pad hinge and adjustable tongue, thus allowing the rider to take full advantage of the 1″ range of adjustment on the pad, as well as pivoting forward or back, allowing you to stretch while riding. This kit comes with a complete set of instructions and all the required mounting hardware. The backrest also includes a handy removable storage pouch on the backside for your small valuables.
The more miles we rack up, the more we realize that increased comfort is never a bad quest, and adding a rider backrest certainly increases comfort, but until now, came with sacrificing passenger space. K and G Cycles is proud to offer the new design Rider Backrest from Big Bike Parts that says “Goodbye” to the external bones and “Hello” all to the sleek lines we are used to on Honda GL’s.
