How did sissy bars get their name? Posted on 03 Sep 16:52 , 0 comments

A sissy bar, also called a "sister bar,"  is a passenger backrest. The sissy bar is an addition back of your motorcycle that allows the rider or passenger to recline against it while riding. Usually attached to the rear fender struts, sissy bars can come with or without leather pads, and can also be used as a support for helmets, backpacks and other gear.

Sissy bars for cruiser-style motorcycles are usually affixed to the rear fender struts, and are typically made of chrome-plated steel with a foam padded seatback for comfort. A backrest for a touring motorcycle is often shorter and less elaborate and may be built into a top box.
