Rider (me) Backrest

I have a 2015A and was wondering if/what people are using for a rider backrest.

Thanks -- Bobby

I've never understood the driver backrest thing. Even with pullback risers I have to completely let go of the handlebars to reach one.

My backrest was an option with my RDL seat. The backrest tilt can be adjusted. I have the Helibars and my back has no problems getting to the backrest.

Is your backrest adjustable?

I don't have one, but I believe that Utopia makes a rider backrest for the FJR (https://www.utpr.com/fjr1300.html). I've had two Utopia backrests on other bikes, and loved them!
