I already have the backrest.You might want to consider purchasing the OEM backrest to give you a solid stop. Then mount the barrel on the rear seat and secure with hold down straps to the cargo hooks.
Tony,To be fair: When you said "I believe I will have to trim the fake leather. The under seat posts/rubber cushions are just a hair narrower than the Hooker."
I thought you had already mounted it.
And when Brad goes missing we will know he failed to adequately explain to the mrs. "going on a solo trip with the hooker system....." :laugh: >I like that a lot Doug!!! That would be perfect if I was going to do some solo things!! I'm going to look up this hooker system......
Its kinda late to ask but anyway you can post a pic of the attachment system with the alterations you made to fit under the seat for members.The Hooker mounting system got installed today.
I think it is going to work good.
Once Spring gets here,I can test it out.
I don't like that the D rings will leave indentations in the seat.
That being said,just about any way a bag gets mounted on a seat using bungie cords causes some type of indentation.
The cool thing is that I can put a lock between the barrel bag D rings and the Hooker D rings.
Sorry about the sideways pictures.
I have no clue how to make them straight.
