we've got your back


Read the latest testimonials/reviews on the Bakup Backrest!

I am writing to let you know how much I enjoy my Bakup rider backrest. This is the single most important purchase I have made for riding comfort on my bike. Before, each time I put over 300 miles a day on the bike my back would really act up. With the addition of the Bakup backrest I don't have to worry. I can ride 500 miles a day or more. It feels like I am in a recliner. My back is fully supported at all times. Around town it is just comfortable and still provides support. I have a Kawasaki Vulcan 1600 and have had my Bakup for over three years. It installed in less than 15 minutes and looks today just like it did when I bought it. Since I live in Florida and usually ride 6 out of 7 days a week 52 weeks a year, this is a testament to it's durability. My only regret is waiting as long as I did to buy one. Thank you for your product. It has made my life on my bike much better. I can not imagine having a bike without a Bakup backrest.

The backrest for the BMW K1200GT is absolutely perfect. It gives me maximum support yet moves with my body as I shift in the seat on long trips.  The adjustment is simple and installation only takes moments to accomplish.  I am not a small person but the Backup fits me fine.  My wife has one on her R1200RT and she feels the same as I do.  She won't ride without it.  Thanks for making the long trips shorter.

Just wanted to say thanks, I have tried a Corbin and mustang both with backrest and both were sent back, they were too uncomfortable for me. There wasn't enough range for me with either one and I felt pushed into the tank and bars. 

But not with your backrest it moves back and forth it seems like forever making the adjustment great for anyones liking. I really do like your product and could haved saved alot of money only if I would have gone this route first. Now if I can find a seat as comfortable as your backrest I will be in hog heaven.

Dear Folks at Bakup,

Thank you so much!!! I received my back rest in plenty of time to install it prior to my long trip. I was thrilled with the high quality of the back rest. The metal fabrication and backrest pad etc were all very well constructed. The back rest installed very easily and allowed me to ride 3,700 miles in 2 weeks with no lower back pain!  You may not remember me, but I had called and sent you a number of emails concerning the fit of your back rest on the Harley Police Road King. I was hesitant at first because your rests seemed to be somewhat pricey and I wasn't sure if it would fit properly. You made a believer out of me - your back rest is worth every penny. As shown in the attached photo, the back rest DOES move with the seat and WILL work with the Mustang pillon seat..In case anyone else asks that question again.

Thanks again for your great product and keep up the good work. I strongly endorse your product.
