For commuting purposes I can highly recommend the Sargent seat.
Have done 72,000 miles or thereabouts on the standard Honda "plank" and since switching to the Sargent, haven't had any ride where it feels like the boney part of your backside is being crushed against the sub frame, like it used to with the stock seat.
When you say you are a "biger" guy, I assume you mean weight wise, if so, just the same as me.
As for daily mileage, mine gets used for rides of anything from 15 to 110 miles daily (working) and it's night and day when compared to the (lack of) comfort offered by the stock seat.
