Burly Tall Black Sissy Bar For Harley Sportster 2004-2015
Doesn't get better than this!
I looked for a while at the various sissy bars for my 2006 XLC and this one kept coming back. I liked the old school chopper type of look it had to it. Don't worry it doesn't go forever into the sky. I ordered and had it crazy fast. two days, I put it on the day I got it. It took 35 minutes to install but only because one of the stock torx bolts stripped while attempting to remove. The bar went on supper fast after the stock hardware issue. Directions were easy to follow, there's a little part in there about relocating the stock washers other than that it's an easy job. I love the look it gives the bike, old lady says it's fairly comfy for the 3 hours she rode with it. For the price, quality, durability, and ease of install you can't give this bar anything but 5 stars. Very sturdy, big fan of the new hex head bolts that came with the bar, see above as to why I hate torx heads. I would recommend to anyone that is looking, thinking about, or desires. It's practical, very useful, and adds some excellent throwback style that you think you might be lacking or you didn't know you always wanted.

Carried all my stuff all weekend
I strapped a tent, a 30 can cooler, and the largest backpack that I own(72 hour pack or bigger can't recall.). I bungeed everything to the sissy bar and took off, no issues at all. Paint looks great and it never flexed at all. Plus it looks great on my sportie. NUFF SAID!

Love this bar. Looks great and my wife no longer feels like she's going to fly off the back!

Glad I purchased the Burly tall sissy bar. Looks great, installed easily and gives my lady a nice angle to feel more comfortable and confident as a passenger.
Next purchase... Burly brand bars

Well-made and easy to install
Title says it all, really - I had initially bought a cheaper (and inferior) sissy bar from a certain auction website and the difference between that and the Burly version was like arctic night and tropical day.
Clean welds, simple to install and just the right dimensions. I'm using it solely for luggage, not a passenger, so I can't speak to the comfort level, but I'm pretty damned happy with the purchase.
One minor point - the longer bolts supplied with this use an imperial, not metric, allen wrench. Took me a little digging to find one of those in my toolbox.

Straight forward kids.
Its clean, minimal, does the job. I'm a pretty new rider and am just now comfortable enough to have the lady on the back. I have that Rough Crafts diamond stitch solo saddle with the passenger pad. That along with this sissy bar are more than comfortable enough for doing errands around the city she says. She feels way more secure with this sissy bar for her to lean against then with nothing there. The pad on it is small and its not the most comfortable for long hauls, but overall for her its more than adequate.
Also, strapping my medium rucksack to it is super easy.

Awesome, simple sissy bar
This sissy bar is awesome, I put it on my 72 and it looks and functions great. I have custom made seats so I sent in the pad it came with in to get it stitched up with real leather to match. I feel like if you know how to weld it wouldn't be too hard to replicate, that's the only reason the bang for your buck isn't rated all the way up. Otherwise I love this thing.

Simple and sexy!
This is pretty strait forward friends. Easy four bolt mounting, very sturdy, and pretty comfortable. I went with this sissy bar because of its simplicity. I didn't like the looks, price and bulkiness of the ones Harley sold and couldn't really find anything in the price range I wanted. Uhhh...plus its made in Merica! 'Nuff said!
