Motorcycle Seat Causes 20 Month Boner

Motorcycle seats, even the best of them, are generally only good for two things. Keeping your ass from dragging on the highway and causing you some serious tailbone pain.

This one? Oh, you’ll want one of these, and your significant other will want you to have one as well.

A California filed suit against BMW North America and motorcycle-seat maker Corbin claiming that a four-hour ride he took on his 1993 BMW gave him “a severe case of priapism.”

For those among you who aren’t thoroughly versed in your medical terminology, the man is claiming that this highly-useful motorcycle and seat combination has given him, well, the hardon to end all hardons.

In case you were wondering what it is that he felt was worth undertaking a lawsuit over, his “condition” has persisted for 20 months – and counting. The product liability lawsuit against BMW and aftermarket motorcycle seat manufacturer Corbin-Pacific was filed in California Superior Court by one Henry Wolf and his energetic and forward-looking attorney, Vernon Bradley.

In Wolf v. BMW, Wolf¬† alleges that he’s continued to bear the burden of his erection problem since the ride he took back in September 2010. While some among you may wonder why the man is complaining as he’s bypassing the considerable cost of Viagra and like products with his gift, Wolf begs to differ. His lawsuit cites the emotional distress he’s suffering and says Wolf is “unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish.”

For his agonizing and perpetually turgid suffering, Wolf says he wants cash compensation from BMW and Corbin for lost wages, medical expenses, emotional distress and “general damage.”

One has to wonder to whom the “general damage” has been caused. Co-workers? Spouse? Neighbors?

It is, however, very likely that Corbin will find demand for the particular brand of seat in question rising (if you’ll pardon the pun) precipitously in the days to come.
