From Tadpole to DF

I've been riding my recumbent tadpole trike pretty regularly this year and have RAGBRAI as a goal for next year. The main reason I rode a bent is because of the excruciating pain that I get in my nether regions on a standard saddle. I recently changed my trainers seat (we have an upright spin bike) to an ISM Adamo Typhoon. It has convinced me that I was ready for an upright bike again. I picked up a Masi Premiare PC3 this weekend and quickly installed my Adamo saddle. I am taking it on the first 17 mile ride tonight and I can tell you that I am excited. Now to work on my sub-Clydesdale status.
This is the same bike as what i picked up.

We did a quick 9 miles, we weren't prepared for the cold temps this afternoon.

So the pain is gone? Do you attribute that to the saddle, to the lost weight, or what?

The saddle for sure. Believe me when I say, my numbness and pain only took about 10 minutes to develop on my trainer. I swapped the seat to the Adamo and went for a spin. The only pain I felt was on my sit bones, no numbness.

I went for a 17 mile ride yesterday and same thing. My sit bones are a little sore today, but I had no numbness. Even sitting on the stock seat, when I did my test ride, I felt uncomfortable and was ready to get off of it.
