Wow! I received my Utopia backrest and installed it perfectly in less than one hour.
What a pleasure as I’m 76, have bad knees, shoulders and arthritis. The product is very well made and has multiple adjustments. This item will certainly help with the long rides.

Does it get in the way of mounting/dismounting the bike? I'm 71 and the long ride the other day really got to my back.

The backrest automatically falls forward at rest allowing you to mount and dismount easily. There is a slight learning curve for the “leg swing” but easily overcome.

I rode 163 miles after installing my Utopia backrest and was so comfortable that I didn’t want to return home. Prior to that, after about 70 miles on the bike, I’d have to take a break. Couple that with my heated gear and I was in heaven in my naked CTX.

Hi Jazz, Thanks for all the info. I looked up Utopia Backrest but I didn't find a model for Honda CTX. What model did you use on your bike? Thanks in advance.

Thanks again. I will check it out.
Rode 116 miles yesterday. Very happy with the comfort. Between the backrest, cruise control, and floor boards, it’s a totally different ride.
