We have all discovered there is never enough room on a motorcycle to stash all the travel necessities. That frustration builds even more when you talk about the passenger. That is what James and Lisa discovered back in 2008. Lisa learned she could store quite a bit of stuff inside the back flap of the Rider Backrest on their Harley touring bike. Well fast forward to 2011 when James came home with a new bike. This wasn’t really a big deal except when Lisa went to stash her phone and camera she found no place for them. Milwaukee changed the design of the Rider Backrest. This simply wouldn’t do so Lisa set out to remedy the situation. After searching high and low and near and far, it was realized she needed to produce a solution. The result of more than 3,000 miles of prototype testing in weather conditions ranging from 100° + summer days to 20° degree mountain nights, plus countless hours of conversations with riders and passengers along the way. After a few developmental versions, the most functional design was selected as well as the most durable materials to use to create a product that is weather-resistant and easily used on and off the motorcycle.
Born out of necessity, Bone Mountain Motor Gear was launched and passenger convenience was available again. This time with a twist. The Bones had designed extra storage into a backrest cover. Now instead of a small pocket in the back side, you have the option of a pocket plus two pouches and a netted beverage sleeve. Now that you have a well designed stash for your gear, what do you do when you reach your destination? Here comes the clever part – you attach the supplied strap, pull it off the bike and now the ladies have a handy over the shoulder bag. High points include:
- Made in the USA.
- Drink bottle holder with velcro strap to keep it securely in place
- Smaller pockets for camera, wallet or cell phone and more
- Large interior pocket
- Adjustable strap included
- Signature Series Seat w/ Rider Backrest (Softail)
- Short Passenger Backrest Pads (Touring)
- H-D Adjustable Rider Backrest (’09-’13)
- H-D Fixed Rider Backrest (’09-’13)
- Most Round Bar Passenger Backrest Pads (Dyna)
Your passenger no longer has to limit their travel possessions or juggle them while riding down the road. They will thank you for the addition to the bike and for increasing their comfort. Gone are the days of “Honey can you hand me the ……. out of the windshield bag.” They are now responsible for their own travel goodies.
