So my wife is looking at the KLR wondering if:


A. There is some sort of sissy bar to be bought so she can lean back a bit


B. Have some sort of "riders seat" installed where the rack is in the back


Any suggestions or info would be appreceated

I ride one-up so I don't know the name, but some trunks have backrests built in. Bedroll works nice on the cheap.

Most of the pillon 'back rests' for KLR and other small bikes will catch the pillon rider in the small of the back. I have seen some that were fabricated out of automobile seat headrests. Will provide some assurance that they won't slide off of the back, but don't come up high enough to 'lean back'.

Various rear trunk packages, Givi, etc... have back pad options. I don't have a pad on my Givi, but can actually use the trunk as a little back support myself when stretched out on a freeway run.

If your wife wants to be able to lean back, it might be a good opportunity to convince SWMBO that the time is ripe to upgrade to a true bagger for two-up touring.
