Default How does a Grasshopper solo backrest work?

Can't find any info on a Grasshopper solo backrest. I've seen the one that has the bracket that goes with the passenger seat but I'm looking for info on the solo version.

How does it attach? How does it look? Professional? Comfort?

I appreciate any info, experience, or direction thrown around. Thanks.

I have no idea, unfortunatly,
I have the grasshopper that attaches via the pillion seat and it works just fine...however with a female pillion I stow in in the saddlebags and use her as my backrest.

Well, thanks for the reply. I don't have anywhere to bolt to on the bottom of my seat so I would really love to find out how these solo seat setups work and look.

Duh...I didn't think of that. I took a look but, alas, no help there either from my search.

Geez, I can't believe there isn't a picture or video. I guess I'll give a call to Grasshopper and see if they can/will help with questions. I'll pass on any info I get(if I get any).
