Yeah, the mounting is fun. Bike on side stand, left foot on peg, right foot up and over. Like a horse. I'm 40 and 5'9". The bike wasn't easy for me to mount anyway.
Another downside is that one has to remove the baseplate to get under the seat. I don't go there often, but if I did, that would be a hassle.
I left a little space for my backpack, so using it for a backrest is a bit of a stretch. Resting at stoplights is nice. With a backpack (minus laptop), leaning back is very comfy.
