Short vs Tall Passenger Backrest

Does anyone have a short or tall passenger backrest installed on their Raider? If so could you please put up some pics. I am trying to decide which one to go with.

Thanks,

Tall passenger back rest

We tried the short back rest, the wife said the support was in the wrong spot. We bought the tall one, she loves it. You know the story, if the wife's not happy, no ones happy.

I have a short one from M/C Enterprises like this one. Wife likes it, hates the stock seat though.

My girlfriend is also INSISTING I add a passenger backrest to my bike I guess the engine torque is kinda scary when sitting on that back seat.

I was hoping to find a custom passenger seat that had a built in backrest but so far no luck finding one.. anyone ever seen one for a Raider?

Not yet have you thought of making one up yourself we're having one made by a fabrication shop?

I think a raider would look awesome all bagged out with the trunk!!! But I'm old-school I like the rake of the frame I'm not much on the rear fender though. But the truck is a good idea my wife right with me all the time now comfort is a good thing form plus she can carry everything they need!! And I just pop that baby on when she rides and I take it off when she doesn't
