This is what my 09 looks like.

It looks like I can remove the chrome cover and bolt a luggage rack or back rest right to it without buying the HD quick connect hardware for $160.

I assume back rests come in both forms...bolt on and quick connect?

I ask because I want to get my wife to try riding with me but don't want a huge investment in case she hates it.

Just looked in the HD parts catalog, they all look like they're detachable. Crap, now I have to buy the docking hardware

A backrest is good to have, but it is not absolutely essential for a passenger to be able to take a test/trial ride. She just just needs to hold on to you securely; and you need to control your takeoffs. If she likes it, then make the investment.

A quick release backrest and luggage rack is also real nice to stabilize extra bags and whatnot if you plan to travel on it.
