appreciate the help
The backrest is not "adjustable" - it's either upraised or down. Seat position, forward or back, is adjustable - but except for small women, everyone is going to want it all the way back.
What the previous poster said about speed is correct. If you need higher speed, look for a Honda Big Ruckus - and prepare to spend three times the money for a good used one.
