My wife is tall. Her shoulder blades are above the backrest and she gets whiplash action from accelerating. Our '07 seemed to have a taller backrest and she didn't have this problem. Wondering if there is a solution. Building it up and also changing the angle so she sits up straighter. A little more cusion on the bottom and she will be happy. Love the new bike, just need to make sure she does as well. Thanks four any help.

Now to move the trunk back 1.5 inches. The Traxxion relocation kit came in and will be installed this weekend. I have spent a fortune trying to make my wife more comfortable. I was fine with stock, but there's an a** for every seat. Gotta be comfortable.

They are the Hondaline, I had Russell recover them with leather while doing to seat. I will be offering them for sale on Monday. I have purchased a set of swing out arm rest, and will be replacing these over the weekend. $75 plus shipping I'm thinking.
