I had a Dan Vessel backrest and didn't like it, so sold it here last summer. I found that you couldn't do the cruiser Lazy Boy recline on it, and I couldn't get it positioned right. It was either too close and crowding me against the tank, or too far back and I had to stretch to even touch it. It also made getting on/off the bike more difficult. If you ride 2-up, and have a trunk, it's really going to take up a lot of passenger space.
The highway pegs do sound like a good compromise though. With no skid plate, I haven't figured out a good way to do it on my bike that also has GIVI crash bars.
