Russ, it’s definitely all about the arse, everyone’s got one but they’re all different. My comfort seat has the gel insert and if it had been slightly larger (the insert) I would probably still be riding on it. After some time the seat settles a bit and I can feel the edges of the insert (right on the butt bones) but I can do about 3-400 on it before it becomes really uncomfortable. The only real negative I have for the touring/comfort seat is that the gel insert absorbs & holds heat which is a bit uncomfortable for the personals. But it is a good looking seat that’s pretty good for me, but the Laam is perfect for me.
It’s interesting that you seat has a forward lean to it, mine feels more rearward, I do like the looks though but FOR ME my Laam is just head & shoulders more comfy, for me. It’s interesting that you kinda sound like you’re built similar to my son-in-law whose 6’7” and 152lbs w/no butt. I think he could ride on anything and be comfy, but he doesn’t ride. Myself I’m 5’10” @ 230lbs with a smallish butt which puts more load on a smaller area to be polite. It’s all about the arse and they’re all different, there’s just no magic answer.
