OT - Man Sues BMW....

Submitted by JD_UofM_90 on May 1st, 2012 at 11:59 AM

because he rode a BMW motorcycle for 4 hours, and claims that the shape of the seat on the bike caused him to have an erection, that has lasted for the last 20 months......


Now maybe my wife will let me have that motorcycle I always wanted....

Can you imagine if he wins this case? Every BMW motorcycle commercial would have to come with this disclaimer: "If you experience an erection lasting more than 4 hours after riding your motorcycle, please consult your doctor immediately. This may be the result of an adverse reaction to our seat cushions."

I imagine he's got a pretty solid legal theory. After all, he's been carrying that torts textbook around in front of him for like a year and a half.

FWIW, if this were a true case of priapism, his 'member' would have become necrotic and have fallen off by now due to decreased peripheral circulation.

Yet another case report for tort reform...

Was the "general damage" mentioned at the end of the story a result of overuse of said erection?  I've ridden my '83 R100CS with a Corbin seat much more than 4 hours and never had this "problem".  I usually just have hand cramps, which he probably has too ;)
