Regarding Whittierider's question of my question. Looking for someone with different experience. I have been riding for over 30 years now and the 'ol body just doesn't like the same position it seems. I have tried all the various tricks of saddle & stem adjustments but still get it occasionally. Thanks for the thought though.
Regarding Mucknort (love the name!) question, I have just borrowed various club members recumbent for a ride or two so I can't remember the names very well. Some were definitely entry level recumbents (EZ-Tour by Sun?) but some were mid-level. No high end ones though. I really wished I would like the feel of them as it seems that if you find one you like, you just love it....sort of like a Brooks leather seat.
I am currently trying the trekking bars on one bike and will basically have a different setup for each of my 4 (yes, I know that is a lot!) bikes so that may make the comparison easier.
Thanks for the updated responses! I didn't remember I had asked this over a year ago.
