Cool Passenger Arm Rests

Does anyone use passenger arm rests? Are the bolt on sissy bar style the only ones available for a stock Strat? Are there other models that have a different method of attachment? If you use them, does your passenger appreciate having them?
Thanks in advance for you response.

NYSparkle, I have been researching as I will need passenger armrests in the future. The company is called 'Lovehandles' and they make custom bolt on armrests for any cruiser for around $330.00 a pair. They are in the U.S. Here is the website below. Hope it helps.

Cool Aussielad

Thank you so much for the info & web-site. The product at that site looks like a very good option for bolt ons. I like that they can turn 180 degrees and then be used as a luggage rack. Again thanks for that information. Ride hard, Ride safe, Ride Often.

The set made by ultimateseats are pretty nice and probably some of the cheapest. They are here (http://ultimateseats.ca/armrest_yamaha.html)if you haven't seen them before.

bighog85, those ultimateseat brand are almost half the price of the lovehandle brand. I don't know about materials, manufacturing, warranty and all that stuff but you can buy two pairs for the same money.

I know, that is why I suggested them. If they are anything like the seats then they are top notch. They look pretty solid to me but I have never personally used them.

Thanks Stratowart, the more I can compare, the happier I'll be when I decide. Money is a BIG factor on these parts. These aftermarket guys sure like their money. From Pipes to Risers to just Oil, everyone wants our bucks at a premium price!
Again thanks for the link.
