Le Pera's Maverick is far superior to any HD equivalent, particularly if you add the gel pad option. The metal base and lower back support make for comfortable 200 mile sessions. I bought mine from AR Harley in Blackpool who, after I'd mistakenly ordered the 'Up Front' instead of the '2 Up' exchanged it by return of post - worth giving them a call. Given its stepped design, I'd be surprised if you'd need the additional backrest.
