Driver Backrest

I'm looking to buy a driver's backrest. I'm interested in the protac, but not sure. What do you guys think? Where is the best place to buy one.

Thanks, Doug

Directly from protrac. Tell them what seat you have on your bike and that you heard good things about it from the Vulcan 750 group.

X2 on ordering directly from Protac. Call them to make the order. They'll also want to know your height and such, so they can make your backrest come up to the optimum height on your back. Unless they just did that when I called so I would feel like they were making mine custom... Also, their price (when I researched it) was better than any vendor I priced a Protac from.
Its a great backrest and very reasonably priced.

Protac. I have one, it is a wonderful device. Even as comfortable as the stock Vulcan seat is to me, having back support made it much better. Only way to go. Jerry.
