I vote for the Rick Mayer Cycle seat.
While not every seat will work for everybody, Rick does a great job to make it fit you.
Besides one on my Wee, (it took the pressure off sensitive areas), I have one on my Triumph 800 XC and the wife and I both have Rick Mayer seats on our DR 650s. With the Rick Mayer seats, we now can ride 350-400 mile days without any discomfort. Of note, after 18 months, her riding style changed a bit and the seat didn't work. We went up there for a seat for my DR and have her seat seat rebuilt. 18 months later..........Rick did a great job redoing her seat to her new style, built mine and from his place, we took off for a 200 mile afternoon ride.
Rick's dad was the guy behind the Russel Daylong too. Rick is an Iron Butt rider and a licensed nurse so he has knowledge from both sides of the pants.
You can get the seat as narrow, wide, low or high as you need or want.
Just my 2, or maybe 5 cents worth.
