Yes, that's the reason I went with Utopia, because of the weakness of that one. I read about it in this forum.I haven't tried the Utopia backrest, yet, but I think 'll be soon. I bought the Grasshopper backrest and it's just ok. The bracket is too weak and bends easily which causes the backrest to lose it's position as well as stress the seams on the seat. I'm about 270lbs so maybe it's better for smaller guys.
It had better be good for $341.99. They will have to increase my Social Security A LOT for me to buy that. Retirement does have it's down side's lolAnyone familiar with this one?

Got mine on Amazon for way less ($260.00). I have had it for 14,000 miles and it does a good job. Installation is 100% easier than installing a Utopia. Read the reviews on Amazon (there are only 7 of them)......mine is the one with the voyager pic.It had better be good for $341.99.
