    I bought a 2 up seat for my wife and I, but there will be lots of times she doesn't ride... so I'm trying to decide before I put money in a backrest... if I should get a solid backrest and ride solo with 2 up seat and rest...or get a detachable backrest and solo seat and swap it all out when she isn't riding ? I was originally leaning towards solid 2 up setup, mostly cause it's cheaper, but I'm having second thoughts. Which do you guys prefer ? Opinions pls ?

    Thks.

    It's all about personal preference.
    I have a 06 FXDCI with a HD Tall-Boy seat and detachable sissy bar that we I ride 2 up 90% of the time.
    The sissy bar does rattle if she is not against it. If I am going to ride solo, I switch to the stock seat and leave the sissy bar off. I REALLY like the looks of it without the sissy bar and the stock seat.
    You have to weigh what you prefer. 1) A detachable will probably rattle if you’re not 2 up. 2) The looks of having a sissy bar while riding solo. 3) You could go with a short sissy bar.
    It's a tuff questions and nobody here can do that for you.
    Ride safe.

    Part time for me on my Ultra so I went with detachable for the tourpak. That way I can reduce the weight by 42 pounds if not using the TP, attach a back rest and/or luggage rack if needed or go to my Mustang solo seat with removable backrest. Can also attach a luggage rack behind the solo if needed. Thinking now of a solo mount for the TP.
    Options are many and can be changed from total solo to full dress with TP in less than 20 minutes.

    When the wifes not riding with me (most of the time) I remove the rest and put my solo back on.
