When the Utopia Backrest if folded forward, how much of a protrusion is sticking up above the seat? The reason I ask is the my wife with her bad back has to get into the passenger seat sidesaddle. She sort of slides up on the passenger seat and then swings her right leg over the front of the bike. Then I get on. Would the hardware of the seat get in the way of her swinging her leg over the front of the bike?

You should probably get the Utopia model with the "Quick Out" backrest bar. You could then remove the backrest, after she gets situated the backrest would simply plug back into the seat. I think that would be best. I have that model and am very satisfied. Give them a call at 888-343-3320. They are very helpful.

My wife does the same thing and she dosent have a problem with my Utopia.
It folds down so far that it is almost not an issue.
I find pulling the reat out for her to mount up a pain in the arse.
I ALWAYS put my hand on the area of the bike where her foot swings over because the first time I dont she will whack the paint.
