I ordered it on the 1st and it arrived on the 3rd (Saturday delivery by FedEx Ground...who knew?). It looks so good. Now my daughter will be more secure and comfortable.

Is it just me, or does $350.00 for this seem a bit much? My LAAM seat didn't cost that much, shipping included! I would like to get a backrest for the CW, but.....

I also have the rack and backrest combo as well as the kit to take a Givi box. Very good design to alow for a large(55litre) trunk and still not interfere with back rest.
 I have not bought the Givi 55 yet because I have not yet needed it, but it will exist some day.

  I actually googled something like 'motorcycle backrest that allows for trunk mounting' and this is how I found his site.  Good product.
There's no real way of explaining the intoxication of a rock and roll situation you get when listening to your favorite songs. It tran sends standard human capabilities, the adrenalin is like hot molten lava cruising through the veins... and with this kinda inspiration is the reason I don't listen to music when I ride.... hahahaha

  My mistake I did not get what the above shows, I had the sites mixed up it is this backrest/rack combo I bought:   http://www.advancedsporttouring.com/Concours_Luggage_Rack_Passenger_Backrest_p/c14-09.htm
