    IMO it's worth it if you do a fair amount of both 2-up and solo riding as I do.
    Also, it looks good with the lines of the bike. Good solid hardware w/ chrome finish too. A Snap to install.
    Very nice design, but it is expensive.

    $500 for the bracket, back rest, and luggage rack, compaired with $215 for the bestem combo.

    I wonder if that Paladin setup would work with my Kentucky Drive saddlebag mounts. I somewhat doubt it unfortunately. I love my quick-release saddlebags.

    Bestem backrest problem solved

    Bought a bestem backrest for a 2015 Honda Shadow Aero on EBay........$79 .......no instructions came.....didn't look like it was going to fit......after talking with their customer service I found I'm retarded, FYI to all they bolt UNDER the Chrome on the fender.....if you try and bolt on top you will need longer bolts, and it will need spacers, and the most important it will look bad!!!!!! After a month of standing around looking at it and scratching my head, it took 10 minutes to install and it looks great!!!!

    We all have moments like that.
    Glad you got it figured out.
    Don't believe everything that you think.
