Dizz1812-I just bought the Bright White 570 Touring on Saturday and LOVE IT!. The engine braking is so extreme I honestly haven't even touched the brakes much at all. With my wife and I on it, it steers easily in deep rocks or hard surfaces (we're well over 500lbs combined). The power is tremendous and smooth even here where we live at almost 5000 feet. The top of the backrest is around shoulder height on me (5'8") but of course is adjustable. I suppose you could strap to it, but I also believe that you can unbolt it from the frame if you wish (although I haven't tried it yet) which would give you full use of the rear rack. With the back rest on, you really only have the sides of the rear rack available. I am going to buy the ATV hitch carrier rack from Harbor Freight to use when we go on family trips, it may be a good choice for hunting trips as well. The rear rack is unfortunately not the best design with the addition of the backrest on the touring. However, I cannot tell you how much I love the machine overall. I don't think there is a better value on the market (for the money) and I looked at everything believe me. Good Luck!!
