Tony, Susan doesn't have any trouble with the Utopia backrest at all. It folds down far enough that she doesn't have any trouble getting on or off the bike, and it doesn't take away any of her room back there.Tony in AZ said:every where ppl say Utopia.
My concern is the passenger and if the back rest is in the way of the passenger. This would apply to any back rest.
I could use a back rest due to my back history.
