No help with the backrest or the easy brackets, but on the directions I got from Tsukayu it said to use the first and third fender rail bolt for mounting. You can PM TigerX, he has his mounted with a backrest and before you decide on using the easy brackets you might want to see how far off the fender they make the bags hang. Leaves you with about a 2+ inch gap between your bags and fender.

Kenny Reynolds. He's a local painter who is a retired automotive paint and body instructor from a nearby private university. He works out of a shop on his property and is low volume and only paints bikes now. He does mostly Harleys, but all bikes are welcome. I asked around, his name was mentioned, and I went to meet him and saw some of his work. Super-nice guy and he did a great job matching the factory colors for me. I appreciate the compliment, but the bike is actually kind of monotone and boring. I want to have him do some pinstripping on it at some point.

update

Here are some pictures of my bike with the bags all painted up and installed. These were taken inside HawkVTX's man-cave during the Alabama tech session last weekend. The bike was just ridden there in inclement weather, so it wasn't clean, but these will give you an idea. I will get some more posted later when it's nice out with a clean bike.
Holy hell shes a beauty! You are running the exact set up of Batwing and bags I want to run now I know what it will look like. Quick question, what does the script on the bags say?
