I posted this on the *** too so I'm spreading the net (figuratively speaking)

I have the Vic backrest for me on my Ness. Come to find out it severely affects both my wife's and 8 year old daughters comfort. It APPEARS its so far back toward them it's encroaching on their seating area.

If I ride 2 up without it they are good. Is there anyone else that has this issue?

I also find it interesting that the slot in the seat for the driver's backrest is so far back from the back pad in the seat that the adjuster nut in the backrest has to be screwed in all the way to move the rest forward enough to align the rest with the seat.

I just noticed that the 3 letter title of the other forum I mentioned is astricted out. That's funny!

I use the utopia back rest and have had no complaints. It does look like a small area for the passenger. So far three different people have been back their.

I've seen that one and its a bigger pad than the Vic one. My problem is more the mount. It mounts so far rearward.

If you look at the pic, there's like 9" from the bracket to the back of the sitting part of the seat. 9" in another subject is more than enough but not here (so my wife tells me) :)

Ok. You got a deal. I'll bring it to you. You cover expenses. Say.....$250 a mile?

I'll cover the return :)

IF I buy a back rest (and I miss mine from my TC) I believe the Utopia is the way to go from the posts I read. I COULD be mistaken but I think I read somewhere that CycleOps was building a riders backrest as well but I will be darn if I can find that post. I know I have seen nothing but positive on Utopia such as A-Dogs post.

Alot of cash to drop anyway you slice it but I know I WONT be buying the VV stocker. As for smaller space, that has been the comment I have recieved from the back seat as well and I know my riders have been a bit more pressed up against me so I believe it may be true.
