Any Aftermarket Seat Have a Removable PASSANGER backrest???

I keep seeing all these aftermarket seats with removable driver backrests, but none with the removable passenger backrest.

Does anyone know of any?

Definitely Corbin. I got one because I didn't want a sissy bar, but wanted a backrest for the wife on longer rides. The bonus is that it (the backrest) can be used in the rider position also. Nice for long solo rides. I think rider position backrests look kinda geriatric, but on long rides I'll take comfort over coolness.

My biggest fear is when I die, my wife will sell all my guitars for what I told her I paid for them.

Does that seat cure the painful tailbone syndrome? How long of a ride have you taken on the new seat? What are your stats? I'm 6'1" and 210.

You could get a backrest and rack then put the backrest on when needed. I kind of like the look with just the rack on.

It helps a LOT. I used to be good for about an hour & a half in the saddle, and now I can go 2 & a half or so. And then it's more of a numb butt cheeks thing. I rode from Omaha to Eureka Springs, AR and no back pain.

I'm 5'10" and 180. They ask you about your height & weight when you order, so there must be some kind of compensation.

They use memory foam, so it's not a squishy soft comfort. It's a firm shaped to your butt comfort.

My biggest fear is when I die, my wife will sell all my guitars for what I told her I paid for them.
