I love the Montana style R1200C that I bought used and my wife loves the big passenger seat in the rear. After a thousand miles on the bike my wife still refuses to let go of the seat strap for fear of falling off the back of the bike. (I am assured this is not related to my driving) She has admired the backrests she has seen on other bikes, mostly not BMWs, and we have looked into the addition of a backrest on our bike to make her more comfortable especially on the long rides.
Since the bike was bought used with the larger Montana seat on the rear, we do not have the original ivory and blue leather backrest that came with the bike. We have a beautiful chrome hand rail behind the seat but it does not accomodate the backrest.
What do you all feel about the backrest for the passenger?
Does anyone have the ivory and blue leather backrest they would be wanting to sell?
Does anyone have the chrome handrail that holds the backrest that they would like to sell?
If I change out the chrome hand rails, would anyone like to buy the one I will take off for the other rail?
I have seen the costs of these items new and even as a BMW lover I lost my breath and my wife almost lost more than that. Surely, there are these pieces sitting in a garage somewhere yearning to see the light of day again.
