Who did your paint job hoss? That is freaking awesome. Love the colors!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.
