    I have a 93 heritage , it has saddlebags and I want to add a backrest for my lady.
    She said if I add the backrest she will ride (she is new to riding).
    One of the guys at a bike night event said I had to have a "docking kit"
    Can someone please tell me what I need , I don't plan on removing the backrest once installed.
    Hope this question makes sense .
    Thanks

    Oem part numbers are as follows
    52735-85 upright sisssy bar
    52787-92 sideplate right
    52788-92 sideplate left
    may also need
    52771-82 bracket backrest
    52541-87 backrest kit with concho black ( i dont know what is all in the kit)

    I hope this helps these part numbers are from the 1993/1994 parts list and may have been superseded by newer part numbers

    Good stuff in here.
    As a lower-cost alternative, you'll find plenty of solutions with aftermarket suppliers as well ...

    Mine has the HD stock back rest system. Go to my profile and you can look at an album that has much better pictures than the one to the left (by my name).
    Just a FYI as to how it can look.
    Welcome to the forum.

    May want to still consider the fact that the docking kit allows you to remove the backrest if you're heading out solo and want a cleaner looking bike. Gives you more options.

    JBC , very nice.......
    Dr. Dolittle, I plan on leaving the backrest/sissy bar on for use to hold my pack as I go to events and such.
    I am already looking at the Yuma Prison Run , plus others
