Cast Upright and Backrest Pad is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have For Passenger On VRod My wife loves this product. Without this, it is very difficult for a passenger to be seated comfortably on a VRod. With this, i can safely take my 7 year old daughter without the fear of her falling off. Plus it makes the Vrod look awesome

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect There is not much you can do for the VROD, but the small customizations are worth it. I purchased it with the rack and it completely changed the way my VROD looks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great low profile backrest Most of the directions were spot on. But when drilling the holes. Make sure you drill at the same angle as the tabs that will be going through the fender. Check that the mounting holes line up with the pad too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great backrest Although small, leaving little room for seat pads, it is very sturdy and doesn't take away from the bikes curves. Girlfriend loves riding with it much better than nothing.

Looks like it's on backorder until about early August. I would check back on the site around then to see if it's available. Sorry for the wait!
