I have the Yamaha Big Bar...I don't think there's anything flimsy about it. IMHO
, Yamaha makes mostly good quality add on parts (most of the chromed stuff anyways) for the Roadie and this is one is no different. I have the Big Bar and several pieces of hardmount and quick-release backrests, in addition to the Silverado parts that came on my bike. I like them all. I also think the Big Bar follows the lines of the Roadie very well. There's always gonna be a fluke here and there. I believe the Lindby requires you to drill into the frame at the top attachment too...Also, I dropped my bike trying to strategically roll it into the garage. Big Bar saved it from going all the way down and scuffing up stuff.
