Default Ah Grasshopper Backrest

Just curious if anyone has used a Grasshopper backrest...I have a FB lo and they look like they might work well on it...and the price $99 is well affordable...any input from anyone with one would be great...Thanks

Yes, I have one and use it regularly. It does the job; I'm 6'1" and 240-ish and it supports me quite well.

hi hdgzr - the backrest seems to be leaning back quite a bit is that how it comes or did you bend it to suit? Also is that their solo model or the one for use with a pillion?
