I received my standard-size Utopia backrest about September 10th and have since put over 1000 miles on the bike and I can say without reservation that I love the backrest! It's comfortable and doesn't feel at all restrictive. It took a few stops on my first ride to get it adjusted and there were a couple of adjustment "tweaks" after that, but long rides have been a real pleasure since installing this backrest. The attached picture wasn't taken to show the backrest specifically, but it's kinda visible. Should I take another that shows the backrest better I'll be sure to post the picture.

The big thing is that I do like the size of this backrest over the much smaller backrest that was on my Vegas 8-Ball and granted, we're talking about two entirely different bikes but, having that extra support has, for me, really made a positive difference in riding comfort.

Has anyone tried the Utopia version and the Victory? I was wondering how the compare on comfort and quality. Once you include the quick removal option they're pretty close in price.

It would be nice to see the different backrests on different bikes.

Got my Utopia backrest a couple months ago, and hands down is 1000% better (considerably cheaper, better quality, more comfortable) than the one Victory offers.
