Hi Guys and Gals
Just a quick question but I have recently had lower back problems and was wondering if a back rest would be any good for me and stop me having to sell my bike because of the not so sit up straight seating position on the 2002 Volusia.
Any help would be good
Thanks in advance..............

Most people who've fitted them love them for the back support they give  Driver Back Rest 3498837457

I always found the laid-back position uncomfortable after a while but changing to flat drag bars cured it completely

I've had a riders back rest since I bought the bike. I did remove it once and rode home 20 minutes later to replace it as it was so uncomfortable for me. 

I fitted 2" risers to the bars which not only lifts them but pulls them slightly back. I find after fitting those that I can just lean back on to the backrest and cruise all day in comfort.

Wouldn't be without mine mate ...... give it a try would be my advice !

Thanks to all for the replies. Looks like it a winter project for me to save having to sell Black Beauty.

Bit expensive but so is a back specialist when you get back troubles, so we'll worth it.  Driver Back Rest 3498837457
