Unfortunately the Honda 929, 954 & 1000 bikes do not have comfortable saddles according to many. They call them planks or boards of something.
Yet to my mind they are the best I have ever had, for a saddle with softness in it is not to my liking. I do NOT put a maze of weight on my butt or the saddle & count on the even weight distribution meaning I make use of the muscles in my legs. I have even been offered custom made seats, but I will go out & ride 5 to 8 hrs 2 to 4 or 5 days of the week. Okay so obviously I am different.
Yet I have a Yamaha YZF600r with a nice soft saddle only after 5 or 6 hrs on that bike the soft saddle is the one draw-back, BUT then that has to do with the postion of the clip-ons, saddle & rear-sets---not the saddle only. Though a harder saddle would be more to my liking.
Still note I have pointed out the Yamaha FZ1 as probably a most interesting bike especially as you are a man with some weight & size for I am only an old sod of 74+ years of age, 5'9.5 " though quite stooped & 20 lbs overweight being 180. Yes I have been riding bikes for past 58 yrs & this will be my 59th.
