What is with the 12 VRSCDX backrest???

I can't believe there isn't anything better or more user friendly than the one from Harley... For the few times my wife wants to ride on the bike she wants a backrest... I can't believe to get one I have to add a silver luggage rack!! I know I can powder coat or paint the rack black, but there has to be a better way.... Has anyone seen a different one or know of anybody making something that is more of a quick disconnect or some kind of a base plate style like the older bikes???

I've just ordered the luggage carrier and intend to cut the backrest off.
I agree entirely
