Is there a back rest for the CT?
on: March 27, 2013, 09:29:56 PM
Does anyone make a back rest or sissy bar for the crosstourer? On day rides with the wife, to give her abit more space..and to save me using an empty back box...any suggestions?

If its to make her feel more secure have you tried the 'love handles' type of belt?

I think this is not what Ozbar wants. It's a real back rest to give his wife a more secure feeling not falling off the bike when he accelerates!
I've seen it once on a Honda CBR.

Wouldn't you be better achieving this with a top box with a built-in pad - like this one from Scotsy:

Hi there, what brand is that silver top box on scotsy's bike please? Does it come in pearl white? Cheers, Gerard.  :062:
