I would say that proves without a doubt that seat comfort is indeed subjective. I rode my RT for fortythousand miles with a stock seat and could not imagine why there was a problem. But I tried a different seat on a dare and bought it immediatly ,On the seat all day every day 14 days straight. 6k miles. Stock seat. No discomfort yet.
I just finished my first Iron Butt Saddle Sore with a gel seat. I wore UA boxer-briefs (may be TMI but its in the interest of science) and rode 1040 miles in 20 hours with nary a complaint from the boys. Wearing loose boxers or riding commando (not that there's anything wrong with that) may be part of the reason for discomfort. UA or LD Comforts, throw in some Anti Monkey Butt powder and you're good to go!
