Proudly Made in USA, The 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 - 2017 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. Hand made in USA.
I was concerned about cutting my seat, but after watching a few videos and reading the directions BEFORE.....it was a breeze. This backrest is awesome. No more back issues, easy to adjust, folds out of the way when needed. The wife likes the pouch to hold her â€œstuffâ€. And no bars to wrap your legs around.....
This is my 2nd Backrest. Had one on my VTX 1800R and Loved it. I have had 3 back surgeries over the years and this is a
much needed add on for my newly acquired 2004 Gold Wing. I also have a replacement hip so the fold down feature is a great advantage for "my" beat up frame to get my leg over the bike. Only gave 4 stars because suggested drilling locations were incorrect. It pushed the mounting bar too far down into the seat. Other than that 5 stars....great quality product and a perfect match to OEM seat.

This works great for the Rider, as we can get maps ready and place them in the pouch along with cell phones (even with charging cords hooked to them from the trunk), gum, pens, Kleenex, etc. For the Driver, it can be adjusted in so many positions that it will help any back on a long trip. We went to Alaska last summer, and I changed out the maps as we entered different States/Provinces. Had to use maps especially in Canada, as the satellite didn't work when you are out in the middle of nowhere !
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
