Does anybody here ride with the BAKUP Backrest ??????

I recently purchased a '09 w/a Kury backrest, dealer-installed. I test rode the bike 1 day & found the backrest very uncomfortable - for my frame. (it was in the middle position). The next day I started out for home (400+ miles). The dealership moved the backrest to the farthest aft position - still no joy for me. After 100 miles, I stopped & took the dang thang off, completely. The dealer was understanding & very generous - he refunded me my $$ - in full, upon me mailing the Kury back to him.

I used to have a BAKUP on my previous bike V-Star 1300 Tourer & liked the "feel" of the Bakup. The Bakup "gives" & flexes via the Z-like mounting system. BAKUP:

I've been trying to decide between the Bakup & Utopia myself & gonna watch this thread. It's been too cold & now icy & sloppy to do any riding here.

A long time ago I downloaded the Utopia installation video & it looks simple enuf - even for someone simple - like me !
