    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

    You can get a passenger back rest for the GSA here, there aren't any photos on their web site that says its for the GSA but they can email you photos if you'd like, yes, they do have it for the GSA. It is VERY easy to put on and take off, remove two of the bolts (rear) from the luggage rack and mount the back rest.

    There is also this one, but it looks like it may take a little longer to put on and take off, if you think you will be doing so frequently.

    shoot these guys an email or phone call... their stuff is good. Not sure if the GS one would work on the GSA. I'm sure they would be able to help you out.
