As a new gold wing owner I was curious if there is a good - better- best back rest. If anyone wants to give some pointers on which one to get I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance ......

I prefer the Utopia. It installs down through the front of the co-riders seat. No external hardware putting the co-riders knees out in the wind and my wife says it is much more comfortable for her.
From the Northwest Corner.

Utopia here also. You can find a lot of used bracket mounted types for sale but no one is selling a Utopia.

Utopia... I have a recent post showing some pics of my newly installed backrest. I just rode for 240 miles today with the Utopia backrest. It is COMFORTABLE.

Well, looks like Utopia it is. I like the way it looks, no mounting bars to climb around, nice clean look.
Thanks to you all for your "professional" advise.

And less expensive to boot. Would you like a link to an install video ? It's not rocket scientist stuff but it has helped with the concept for some of us. Seeing is believing.

Utopia and it made a world of difference. The cut into the seat is a heart stopper, but read the instructions and watch the video that shows the install. It is worth it.

Utopia is the way to go. Very comfortable and no nasty bars going down the side of the seat to bother the wife.

I think Chopin114 said it best, you'll see lots of others for sale, but no Utopias, they're the cat's meow.
