Highway Hawk say that this item will not fit the 2010 C800 because of slight modifications to the rear but it does, you just need to do up both bolts on either side slowly which will pull the side bars in evenly.
This item in my opinion not only adds to the classic cruiser look but more importantly makes a nervous passenger feel much safer.

You spy right my friend.
I have been there a few times on the bike & really enjoyed it each time, always so much variety for the average motorhead to get his teeth stuck in too. I also regularly park there to take a break when I’m in London in my truck, however on a week day in the daytime it is just another transport café that ain't very cheap . It’s the evenings and weekends that this place really comes alive.

Yes it 'sort of fits' the 2010 - I bent the sides a bit on mine to make it fit nand then put the bolts in snugly (bit of a fiddle to get the bolts under the fender but I got there in the end. If I ever take it off, I'll leave the side rails in place, just removing the seat back. It's really sturdy isn't it? The Mrs. arrives at the destination just like I do I dont have a carrier or saddles but for short trips I loop a small holdall over the sissy like this:

to be honest even tho they do kind of fit, I really do wish I had bought the genuine Suzuki one. They look much much nicer, anyway that's what you get when you buy an item without giving it to much thought. When I first fitted it I swapped the left and right sissy bar support bars around which had the bars placed on the inside of the bikes support bar & I think that looked much cleaner.
