CVO backrest question

Anyone know of a CVO solo seat backrest that folds forward ,for the ease of getting on the bike without trying to pick your leg up and over the backrest.
I've seen the CVO backrest which looks good,to bad it doesn't fold forward

Just get on the bike from the right side. It's a lot easier.

Its why I don't own a CVO! That damn backrest problem! Sorry...I am jealous and couldn't resist. Wish I could help, but I cant afford that bike so I don't have those CVO Problems. Best of luck with a solution though.

You know, instead of Up and Over, you can slide it in front of the backrest.....like I do......took me all of 1.8 seconds to make the adjustment.........just a thought...........but to answer your question, I have only seen one CVO Rider's Backrest option out there and she no fold

If you build it, they will buy it

I'm 5'8". If I tried to put my leg over the backrest, it would be the equivalent of doing a split. Like Eddy said, learn to slide it in front of the pad.
