California Man Sues BMW: Your Motorcycle Gave Me A 2 Year Erection!

Henry Wolf of California is suing BMW America and aftermarket seatmaker Corbin-Pacific claiming  that after a four-hour ride on his 1993 BMW motorcycle, with a ridge like seat that the motorcycle gave him a hard-on that lasted non-stop for nearly 20 months

Wolf is seeking compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, emotional distress and what he calls “general damage” as Wolf claims that now he is unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him “substantial emotional and mental anguish.”

Dr. Michael Lutz, at the Michigan Institute of Urology, said there is no medical data to support the Wolf’s claim. However, “It’s been long-known that compression of the neurovascular supply to the penis —  if it’s compressed for a period of time, whether it be on a bicycle seat or some other device — it can actually cause prolonged numbness of the genitalia”

BMW Motorcycles of Southeast Michigan in Canton, Mich., checked out the story and noted the man wasn’t riding a standard BMW motorcycle seat. He was on an after-market seat, which start at about $200. People generally buy them to make the ride more comfortable.

More comfortable?  It gives a whole new meaning to “pocket rocket”!

I  can just see the new BMW motorcycle commercial now: 

If riding this seat causes an erection that lasts more than nineteen months, please see your doctor.”
