Rider backrest for 800 XC

Hi:

Anyone know a source for a rider backrest for the Tiger 800 XC?

Corbin seats has the item but you have to buy their whole seat

system to get it.

Thanks

Its not 'exactly' what you're looking for, but if you're in the market for a topbox, Caribou sells kits that use Pelican boxes and he makes a back rest accessory for them...

Are you talking about the rider or passenger?

800 XC backrest

I am looking for a backrest only for the solo rider. I ride about

15,000 miles per year. It takes a few hunderd miles to get to some good riding from Florida.

I didn't see a driver backrest on the Corbin sight. Make sure before you buy.

You are correct; their Tiger 800 seat has provisions for a PASSENGER backrest only; that particular seat cannot have a DRIVERS/FRONT seat backrest.

I am using a Biker's Friend, the medium size hard "roll bag". I've used it on several motorcycles, and it's a handy place to keep rain gear, etc, handy. But it's best feature is it makes a dandy backrest.

I have seen some backrests that were made for the BMW LT's that are a L shaped metal bar with a pad. This might be a solution, it would take some fabrication.

Talking Hey you!

Keeping one's back straight will reduce fatigue, allowing more miles and a safer, more aware rider. Harley has known this for years. That's why they have rider's backrests. I haven't seen the need for a backrest on the Tiger as of yet, but I may change my mind as miles accumulate.
