N1K Backrest?

Does anyone have a backrest solution besides a top box for the N1K? I have a 2015, with tourmaster side bags, and I would like a removable backrest to be able to install for my son, daughter, or wife to use when they ride with me. Thanks for any ideas.

I've seen people add padded backrests to the Ventura Sport Rack. They got the padded backrests off eBay. Here's the link to Ventura:

Didn't someone from rider forum add one to his stock passenger seat? I remember thinking how cool motorcycle was.

Easy to switch out when not in use. I think he bought a spare seat?

Funny thing is....if I type "2016 Ninja 1000 backrest" in to google....it gives me 2 links FROM KAWASAKI saying it is a backrest for a '15 and a '17 backrest for the ninja 1000....and then it goes to a backrest compatible with vulcans....

I need to get back on this project. I have everything to adapt a Corbin backrest to a stock seat, except a spare seat to tear into. I have a Corbin backrest I kept from my Connie.
