I ordered a grasshopper backrest today. I hope it does ok. Have heard good and bad. I wanted the http://www.cruisercustomizing.com/custom-world-international-plain-driver-backrest-c50-volusia/part/CWI-03-165 but i can't handle that much right now. Tex

I ordered a rider backrest last Thursday after looking about for 6 months. (I suffer from lower back probs)

I went for an adjustable one which cost a lot more and was designed for the M90 (uk 1500cc)- (could not find anything for the M800, 2010 reg)

So i expect it will not fit and i shall have to pay out more to get it adapted!!

I did like the grasshopper ones, and they are very reasonably priced with good reviews.

It'll be fine

I hope it will. My brother and I are going to spend 3 or 4 days riding the Blue Ridge and Smoky mountains in North Carolina in may. At my age I need some back support for that many days. I really did like the adjustable but just couldn't afford it now. Maybe later I can replace the grasshopper. Good luck with yours I don't think there will be that much difference in the one you ordered and yours.

That sounds like a great ride. I was stationed at Bitburg Airforce Base Germany 1965/1968. That is close to Trier about 45 minutes from Luxemburg. Enjoy riding with your Dad while you can. I am 72 and would rather burn out than rust out. I tell everyone I intend to live until I die. Some die and wait many years for the undertaker to come pick them up. Grasshopper Back rest 3298

I put the back rest on today. It needs some major re-engineering,. I will post Pic's when I get it done . One of the bends hit me in the back before the pad does. I will put before and after Pic's. It is 6 pm here and I have to go pay some attention to the bride. Things work better that way.She has to work tomorrow so i have all day to put on my redneck engineering cap and make it work. If it don't work Get a bigger hammer. See ya

I have to do some more engineering on mine. I think when I get it fitted right I will like it also.
