I have a low upright medallion style black sissy bar. There is a countersunk hole in the medallion mount. I assume the countersink faces out the back. Before you jump all over me for a stupid question I should tell you I am going to put a 90 degree bend on the mounting "leg" of the bar. I am making a backrest for my solo that mounts on my detach hardware. I just dont want to bend the damn thing the wrong way and have to raid ebay for another one.
