I've got more saddles than a golfer has putters or drivers.
Settled on Specialized body geometry saddles.
Alias on road bike and Nomad on touring bike.
Laying around are
Fizik Aliante
Terry Liberator
Terry Fly
Couple of Brooks
and several others I can't remember.
The specialized are the only ones that I have NO problem w/soft tissue numbness (can I say numb Johnson?)

I've got a pile of saddles in the closet.

Finally found a couple brands/models that work for me...and when I did, I bought spares.

I also have one bigass century saddle that's a bit overdone for the short rides but juuuuuust right for an all-day ride.

I've also go several brooks saddles, ranging from a perfectly-broken-in honey one to a couple hard-as-rocks new ones.

I haven't had too many saddle problems but I've really screwed up my hands once--several fingers and portions of the hand were numb for weeks.

I also have a "perfectly-broken-in honey one" but the one I use for all day is the Nomad and it is SOOOOOOOOO SSSSOOOOOOOOFFFFFFFFTTTTTTTTT.

What brand did you finally settle on?

I had the numb hands and fingers when I went to Tahoe on the BMW. Put a throttle lock on the MC. Have a little problem on the bikes, but I think mine is mostly old age and a little arthritis.

I put that seat on my Trek Pilot. It's really comfortable.

this is the most uncomfortable, Johnson numbing saddle that I have ever sat on. Are you sure you want one of these???????

they are light and flexible; however, other than nice to look at I can find no other redeeming quality.

If I rode that 3000 feet on a water mattress my balls would pop out of their sack and run down the street.

I know some guys that love 'em more than any other. But then all of these guys have hips smaller than a brick.

My lower back is super tight this morning. I've done some stretching but not sure if I'm doing it right.

(Laying on back, raising one leg at a time/knee to my chest, with the other leg straight and extended. Once I do each one, I do both at same time.

Any suggested stretches that may help my lower back before a ride?

Are you stressing with the job change? When I went through my break-up, my back nearly killed me. Leg lifts always seem to strain my back in an unnatural way. Toe touches, upper torso twists and military presses with light weight work good for me. Ab strength will help support your back.

I get a better lower back stretch standing and touching the floor,
with a twist to either side. Or sitting on the ground stretching forward.
Another good one is laying on your stomach and lifting each leg up and
to the side to full extention.
