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 - 2016 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, fits all GL1800 Gold Wings.

  • 40th Anniversary Color Stitching throughout the whole backrest.

Red stitching starting to fade

I have had this back rest for about 6 months and the red stitching is starting to fade some. This is my second Utopia Backrest which works great.

Looks like a custom seat.

If your wife is heavy it can get in the way and DE installation is 2 screws. Gives ample support, has a handy pouch. Stay focused when installing or wreck your seat. Accurate alignment is necessary. Measure thrice and cut and drill once. I succeeded first time though my profession calls for accuracy.

Great product

This is my first wing and for the first 1,000km had lower back pain from slouching. Just fitted the Utopia back rest easy to install (watched the video) and what an excellent product the additional riding comfort is superb and the 40th anniversary model matches the bike well with the red stiching. Leaving on a 4,500km ride this week will see how we go.

Excellent Backrest

This is the fourth Utopia Backrest that I have had over the years. It is easy to install, the multiple back adjustments work great ... and my favorite part of this one is the 40th Anniversary color matched red stitching! It fits in very well with the 40th Anniversary red stitching on my 2015 GL1800 Red/Black model seat!
