Utopia because it doesn't have the external bars on the sides that hurt my passenger's legs.

I've had 4 Utpoia's on 4 different bikes. The only way to go if your comfortable with your stock seat.

Just purchased my 5th one for my brides 650 Burgman Trike

About a year ago I posted a question on this forum about which backrest was recommended. If you do a search it should come up. I got a lot of replies! In any case the Utopia came in #1 by such a margin it wasn't even remotely close. So that is what I bought. One of the best accessories I've purchased! FWIW if you buy the Utopia Backrest, get a 1/4" diameter Pin about 2 to 3 inches long. It makes the Backrest a Quick Detach/Install item for about $1.25 from your local Hardware Store! Someone sells them on eBay for $10.00 or so, if a trip to your Hardware Store is to much trouble! LOL
