Seat Choice is a matter of personal choice. But, I will tell you after riding hundreds of miles over several days several times. It don't matter what seat you get. You will never get the comfort like sitting in a lazy boy. You a$$ will ache after a day long of riding. What I have found to eliminate any butt pain is. Don't sit on your wallet. Don't wear Jocky skivvies. Underwear choice is as important as the seat itself. You don't want seams cutting into your thighs or butt. You will see some Gold Wingers wearing something like pajamas because there are no seams. Maybe you should even try not wearing underwear and pants without back pockets. Just remember you are straddling a seat and like tires only have a 4 inch patch on the road, your but only makes a small patch on the seat.
