    R1200RT Barbacks

    Searched but didn't find any mention of barbacks on the R1200RT.
    Anyone installed them? If so, make and impression?
    Just finished an 1,800 mile excursion on my brand new '06 12RT (with 11 Harleys, 1 Valkyrie and one other brave Beemer guy - 1150RT) & found I wasn't as upright as I'd like to be.
    Any comments would be appreciated.

    It doesn't sound like much of difference but they really helped me and the price wasn't too bad.

    Ditto for me.....took about 5 minutes to install, helps a lot!

    One of the first mods I did to my bike was the bar backs and I wouldn't take them back off. I much prefer my riding position since installing them and have put 7k on the bike since spring this year (purchased in March).

    I'm assuming these are the Moto Techniques ones, right?

    Thanks for the input.

    Anybody know if these are compatible with the Navigator II/III mount? I have the stock R12RT tank bag - seems like the bar backs might cause the GPS to conflict with the bag?

    They change the position of the Nav II the same amount as the bars in relation to the tank (up a little, back a little). The Nav II position in relation to the bars, however, remains a constant.
