Nothing wrong with the Bakup, which is far and away the most popular backrest in the LT community.
Another alternative, though, is the Utopia backrest. The size and function is pretty close to the Bakup (adjusts up and down and front and back). The "pro" is that it is less expensive than the Bakup; the "con" is that it mounts to the passenger seat pan so it's a little more trouble to install. You can still remove the backrest easily if you want to (I've never felt the need).
The Utopia has a big following in the Goldwing circles. It mounts a little easier on the Wing, though.
One neat feature of the Utopia is that the vertical mounting bar has a spring-detent high-low setting. If you put your driver seat in the high position, just give the backrest a tug and it pops into the high setting. If you drop your driver seat to the low position, just push down on the Utopia and you're all set, no tools.
It also has a little zippered bag with a shoulder strap on the back of the backrest for your passenger to use.
