Harley-Davidson King Backrest Pad forOne of the most bizarre things that I ever saw riding down the freeway was pulling up past a couple on a big touring Harley-Davison and seeing the woman on the back asleep. Not only was I dumbfounded that someone could feel comfortable enough on a bike to catch some zzz's , but I noticed that the pad that she was in was basically like an oversized car seat. It was the first time I saw something like the Harley-Davidson King Tour-Pak Backrest Pad, and I'm not quite sure if I'd feel safe knowing my passenger was cutting logs behind me.

Recuperating on lost sleep isn't what Harley-Davidson had in mind when they made this, but I think it does hold a testament to the comfort it gives. It's designed to fit almost all '97 to current Touring models already equipped with the King Tour-Pak Luggage, so it's not a stand-alone backrest. You have to have the luggage already installed. It comes with everything you need to mount the pad, though. It seems like it might take away some of that instinct you might have to hold on for dear life, though, but will surely make your passenger of choice more comfortable if they decide to accompany you on a long trip.
