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.

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 !
I'm not as young as I think and was totally against this idea at first. but after ten hours in the saddle this was one of the best buy I've made in years. The only down side would be putting a knife to my bikes seat ,hoping not to hit the heating cords ,just hate to cut a perfectly good seat. I have gotten a friend to add this to his bike.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
