This Made in USA Utopia Backrest is the Original High Quality In Seat Style Backrest designed for and fits any year GL1800 Goldwing motorcycle, including the heated seat version and the 2012 - 2014 GL1800. This is the new version of the backrest and is made with non-dimpled material.

Utopia is the Driver backrest that becomes a part of your seat. No bars in the way of drivers hips and legs or passengers legs. Folds forward to ease passenger getting On or Off and adds to safety by getting out of the way in sudden stops. Includes up and down height adjustment, as well as driver seating position, back and forth, to help driver sit upright to avoid slouching--a big factor in driver fatigue.

Backrest pivots at top of bar as you lean against it so no uncomfortable edges dig into your back. Well padded, but only 1-1/2 thick which takes up less seating room than most other backrests. All Top Bars are finished in a Beautiful Black Powder Coat. Comes with handy pouch with strap to convert to shoulder bag. Fits all GL1800 Gold Wings.

Must Have

I've ridden from San Antonio Tx to California and from San Antonio Tx to Fairfax Virgina without any soreness to my lower back even with 3 back to back 12 hour ride days. Must have.

5 star product ... but sadly 1 star for the enclosed instructions. Poorly written, sentences broken off in the middle, photos that are worthless... For an American product, I am seriously embarrassed!

Couldn't see myself riding without it.

The Utopia driver backrest with the storage pouch was on my Goldwing when I bought it. I knew that it was a must after enjoying the comfort of a driver backrest on my VTX. The styling is a perfect match for the stock seats and the adjustability of the backrest is a winner in my opinion. It was well worth someone's investment and I'm glad that I am the beneficiarie.

Utopia Backrest

I recently purchased a Utopia Backrest for my 2012 Wing. I had bought one years ago for my 2004 Wing and been very pleased with that one. When I took delivery of my new one I was once again happy with the quality. They have actually improved the pouch behind the backrest itself and mounted it in such a way that is more protected from the elements. It installs quickly and easily. The key is to measure carefully before you cut into the seat. If you do that installation is a breeze. The directions are clear and specific to models with and without heated seats. I rode for 2 months without a backrest and missed it terribly. The Utopia is a quality product.
