Given that the wonderful sponsor of this board appears to have regular sales that you longtimers know about, would I be wise to wait a month or two ( ie near Christmas time) to order a new Utopia backrest? A rather indirect way of asking if there will likely be a Direct Line sale during the holiday season. Sorry Hal, had to ask.

If you are talking about the Utopia, the only thing that makes it removeable is the quick release pin instead of a bolt. Any delay would be caused by Utopia being on backorder.

When I ordered mine they only had one and to make it easy to take off they had a quick release pin that replaced the bolt. How does the new model work?

It has a flap to snap when you remove the backrest

The backrest has a detent built in it and the backrest just slides out. I got mine at Wing Fest in Fletcher, NC.
I think it was another 50 bucks though. I like it. When I make the wing a crotch rocket I just take off the backrest and then I can slide in the saddle better. :lol:
