Thumbs up Good quality riders backrest.

I've had my new V-Star 1300 Tourer for about 3 weeks or so and I'm interested in buying a riders backrest. It must be good quality and sturdy as I'm 6ft-5 inches and 350 lbs and I tend to break things that aren't well built

Recommendations please!

I think about the biker's friend, https://www.bikersfriend.com/. Storage and back support in one. I got one last summer and now my wife wants one for her bike for mother's day.

that looks like it could be a bit of top heavy weight if you load it up.

In general anything you carry on your motorcycle is best placed in the triangle between your helmet, and the front and rear axles. Any load outside that triangle reduces the inherent stability of the bike.

Its not top heavy. Its easy on and off the bike. But my triangle is wider because of my batwing. But I enjoy riding with it because of the back support at high speeds. You can be the judge. But don't knock from a picture.

The Biker's Friend looks cool on the V Star pictured in the video, on the chrome fender luggage rack. I'm sure it's no more top heavy than a trunk or passenger, of course.

Like the fact that it says it's rain proof. Maybe good for stuffing my sleeping back and one person tent in. Hmm.
