    Hello everyone. I'm really enjoying the Gunner but I need to add a backrest for my wife to feel comfortable riding with me. I had the dealer put on a pillion pad and passenger pegs. I am new to the whole motorcycle customizing thing. My previous 2 bikes remained all stock as long as I owned them. I have a few questions about this however.

    1. I know the Vegas/Gunner/Highball have a lot of the same parts. Will backrests that fit on Vegas/Highballs fit on Gunners? If so, is it only more recent models? I have seen some backrests online that fit 2003-2011 Vegas/Kingpin models or ones that fit 2004-2013 Vegas/Highball models.

    2. I prefer the look of a sissy bar to the look of a passenger backrest. I have seen sissy bar passenger pads online as well. Are sissy bars typically sturdy enough to use as a backrest?

    Any tips/help is appreciated. Thanks a bunch in advance.

    Did you ever find a backrest or Sissy bar for the gunner?

    Yeah. Witchdoctors makes some cool ones. There is also a passenger backrest/luggage rack combo I saw on ebay which is what I will probably end up getting, made by BDD Custom.
