Rated 4 out of 5 by from Back pain relief! Purchased the Road King style back rest for my 2014 Ultra Classic along with the adjustable mounting kit. The style is perfect but without a doubt adding this backrest has improved my ride comfort emencely. I don't know why I never considered this option especially on my 2009 Heritage Classic which was a beautiful bike but very uncomfortable. My only comment is that the back rest, when adjusted to provide the best back support, seemed to push me a bit too forward. I got accustomed to the feel with a few days. My intent was to only ride with the backrest on longer journals but I keep the back rest in place all the time. Best $300 I've ever spent on Harley accessories.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BACKREST MAKES BIG DIFFERENCE I recenlty bought the adjustable backrest for my 2013 RKC. I recently learned I have a degenerated disc in my lower back. The made a big difference as I travelled over 500 miles at Bike Week in Myrtle Beach. I ride without it around town / to & from work. The reason I didn't give 5 stars, after purchasing it and down at Bike Week, looking at other bikes I realized my didn't have a leather skirt around the neck like so many others did! My bust I missed that prior to buying. Definately worth the comfort for the long rides.
