Francois_Dumas Posted October 16, 2007 Share Posted October 16, 2007 I keep seeing photos of RT's (and other bikes) with these funny looking little back rests on them. I NEVER see them in Europe (except on some cruisers), and I am wondering.... I can understand a backrest for the pillion who is not actively involved in controlling the bike. But for the rider !!?? It seems to me that 'using' this strange part means you have to slump and press the lower part of your spine into it. That in turn has all the marks of a BAD riding position (where normally you'd sit slightly bent forward with a straight back and in full dynamic control of whatever will happen). Inquisitive minds want to know..... Link to comment
