I'm looking at a Show Chrome drivers backrest.



I've never dealt with Show Chrome products and want to know your impression of the quality of the products.



As well as is the designconsidered equal to or better than OEM products? i.e. Honda's driver backrest vs Show Chromes etc...

When it comes to backrests, there is really only one. It is called the Utopia.

It is what all the rest strive to be.

Kit

The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike. A crotch rocket with storage bags.............As for oil I use the slick kind, and I like round tires, but as of late I have found square ones work best on the rear. Pirelli Eufori 195/55/16 @ 32 PSI

I agree, if you need a back rest Utopia is the best way to go. Great folks to deal with too.

As for the question - I don't think their chrome is very thick. Looks like it's going to rust through. IMHO.

I've got the Show Chrome backrest. Works for me and I have no complaints. I would do it again. The Utopia was too pricey for me and I didn't want to cut my seat. 10 minute install and ride away....okie

My experience and opinion is the exact opposite. I'll never buy their garbage again.

Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.
