the backrest stays in place and the luggage rack lets down or stores up ought of the way.I dunno. I don't "get it" I guess. To me, it's not any better looking or less intrusive folded flat than if it were "up". I think you'd be better off with a quick release model. Though, PERSONALLY, I kind like the look of a nice looking chrome sissy bar; and don't mind it on the bike all the time.
Ohhhh. I thought the whole thing folded down and I thought that was just silly.the backrest stays in place and the luggage rack lets down or stores up ought of the way.
not sure, J&P cycles show it under Vulcan 900 parts, just have to order the fender brackets separate. not going to use it for a backrest for passengers. I want to attach my backpack with my workout clothes and shoes. guess I could just wear it but the way it converts and stows away the small luggage rack, sort of cool. having the Custom, I do not like the looks of a padded backrest on it. being 65 and little experience, will not be carrying anyone. here is a picture of my last bike that I sold around end of 1975Does Kuryakyn even make a Transformer that fits VN900?
Kuryakyn excels at "gaudy". I tend to prefer traditional, as well.Well, I'm not crazy about the look. But if you like it, go for it! I'm kind of a "traditionalist" when it comes to motorcycles. I like chrome, tubes and squares, etc. Not really a fan of funky shapes, blacked out stuff, etc.
A lot of aftermarket stuff is gaudy. Sad thing is while there is a decent amount of things available for the 900, there isn't a lot of choice between manufacturers. Cobra, Kuryakyn, Baron's or OEM.Kuryakyn excels at "gaudy". I tend to prefer traditional, as well.
