Looking for tall sissy bar and luggage rack 1 Month ago  
I am looking for a tall sissy bar, a luggage rack and passenger arm rests for my 07 Roadstar Silverado. Anyone who can help me would be greatly appreciated.

I have a short sissy bar with pad, and a oem luggage rack that goes with it. I won't be able to dig em out until late next week, when we get home from this hospital stuff. PM me if you want any of it.
I also have an E.D. big tour seat on a stock pan. It is plain, but in almost new condition since I kept a seat cover over it.

I appreciate that. From what I have read today Yamaha has two racks. One for the quick release and one for the, "permanent" sissy bar. (2 bolts doesn't make it permanent in my book. LoL). I don't have the quick release but I sort of wish that I did. Fun just isn't as much fun unless my wife is there so I tell her all the time that I am coming home to pick up my accessories, (that's her). She's never ridden a motorcycle until we got this one and she is really digging it but her back hurts after a while so if I can do anything for her comfort that will be great! I am new to the forum and I haven't seen any posts but I hope that your hospital stay isn't serious. Thanks for replying. If you are in the hospital then your problems far outweigh mine. I will add you to my prayers. One of the other members said that he has a taller sissy bar but I am definitely interested in the rack and if you have the quick release system I might be interested in getting that and I will try to resell the permanent sissy bar system that I have. I would love to see pictures of the seat as well. We are talking about riding to Florida to see my mom and to ride an hour from there to bike week with my uncle. I hope that you Feel better. Joe

If your wife is going all the time you will be better off with a tour box for her comfort.

+1 on Mort's suggestion. My wife did not ever ride and was not entirely comfortable leaning back on the backrest. A rider that does not feel comfortable and is tense will do all kinds of strange things to affect your control of the bike. Got a trunk with a semi wrap around backrest and it made all the difference in the world. Now I barely notice she is back there. Besides if your wife goes with you much, soon you will find yourself hauling around a lot more crap than you can cram into the saddlebags to keep her happy. Plus if you live a ways from the city, you might find yourself running on the bike instead of the cage for small shopping trips if you have room to haul a little bit of stuff home. . . .

+2 to mike's post the Wife loves her throne just make sure you have a good rack bought one and it developed cracks used it as a pattern and built a new one with 1/4' inch plate she is much more comfy as it is a lot more solid. Like the ole saying if Momma aint happy no is happy, momma is now happy again.
