Comfort and style. Motorcycle backrests and sissy bars can add one or both of those qualities to your machine. The sissy bar, or sister bar, was first introduced as a piece for either the rider or the passenger to lean on while riding. Sissy bars became an extremely popular style upgrade as riders added creative designs to how the bar was shaped. Back pads were added to the sissy bar to make them much more comfortable to lean against. Most cruiser sissy bars and backrests are mounted to the rear fender struts and can be added with minimal tools and time. Custom aftermarket seat manufacturers make mounting easier by creating compatible backrests that slip into a mounting slot on the seat. This makes adding driver backrests and passenger backrests much easier. Motorcycle backrests for touring bikes can be very luxurious with optional built in armrests, drink holders and the ability to be heated. On the other end, some motorcycle sissy bars are very minimal and are more about style than comfort. Sissy bars and backrests also make a great mounting area for luggage racks or to strap luggage bags to.
