swing down driver back rest

Post by royside » Thu Aug 04, 2011 1:57 pm

I have an 86 limited edition 1200 and have purchased a back rest that i thought i could adjust out of the way for mounting and demounting. It will not adjust out of the way and is too tall for my short leg to swing over. Does anyone have experience or information on a driver back rest that swings forward and low enough to allow a short fat man to mount his bike?
Thanks in advance,

Yes, Utopia makes a removable/ fold flat that is color matched to your seat... Also, if yoru step with your left foot on your left foot peg you gain 8" when mounting the bike ( like a horse) make sure to grab the brake or not running in gear.
