    can anyone tell me where to find/buy a passenger backrest for a 2015 GSA?
    I've seen pictures on here and elsewhere...
    was going to buy one from a fellow inmate but he decided to keep it...
    i know that they exist but my computer illiteracy / old school way of life seems to be keeping me from accomplishing this simple task...hell I don't even have a cell phone or computer...
    hijacking my wife's I pad as we speak...
    Not a hard case with a pad...an actual removable backrest.
    Any help / info would be greatly appreciated...

    I can see plenty that fit a GS but isn't the rear OEM rack different on the GS ADVENTURE?

    Just my 2 pennies here but, my partner tells me wearing her riding jacket w/the D30 back protection in it works very comfortably leaning against the top-box pads. I would imagine you'll have to ride w/o the top-box on to utilize a pIllion seat back rest as say the Harley's riders do. Wunderlich sells such, I believe.

    Thank you...2 cents are worth a million bucks sometimes...We have the BMW hard cases with a pad on the top box...the Mrs. and I are just looking for another option...when "adventuring" around town 2up we don't often take the hard cases...

    Probably will not work for you unless your willing to change top racks- but....
    I changed my GSA rack to accept a vario- so just in case....

    My wife has used this rack for thousands of miles on different bikes, and loves it.

    I believe that is a Corbin seat with one of their backrests. You need to have a Corbin seat for that one.

    click on accessories and it will show a few different back rest examples
