Finally got my first wing.
A 1998 Gl1500a, with a Voyager kit.
Looking to get suggestions here for how to outfit it.
So far I found the 12v outlet thread very helpful.
Now Im looking for an adjustable backrest that has been tried out by someone and is truly adjustable.
Welcome Chris. As Ron mentioned try Wingstuff. I had a Markland (not around anymore) on my 1200 and it was a good piece of kit as far as adjust-ability went but it did squeak an awful lot. Had padding on the arms to aid in passenger comfort.
grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!

Well a happy Pillion is what I seek and some relief for my 48-year-old back. Thanks for the tip Fossil. It appears there is not a Utopia for the 1500? Is there a model for the 1500 that is similar?
Has anyone made the "cut?" Does it continue to tear?
Ive also got my first wing, its also my first bike, the first thing I did was change the useless led brake light on the spoiler, I bought a cheap one from Amazon & stripped it down, the led strip was the perfect size replacement for the original. it only took a few minutes & I now have a super bright led spoiler light now that was easy to fit, (Safety first)Ive added a link for the unit I stripped.
Yes there is a Utopia for the 1500 Chris. I had one on the seat of our trike when I bought it. Ended up trading the seat/backrest and some cash to another forum member
for his Hartco that was too wide for him to get his feet down solid to ground.
To the best of my knowledge Ross is still using that seat with the Utopia backrest.
Here's a link to a place that are good people to deal with.
Thank you for the link Fossel I was looking around on that site and had marked other one. This one I was looking at (http://cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/gl1500_seat_mount_backrest/126/151177) to mount upside down for most leg room for the boss thoughts on that? The utopia is now in my wishlist to be ordered with a set of highway pegs any suggestions on those? The fairing is pretty tight to the engine guards ? Would boards fit?
