Uneasy rider sues over bike-induced erection

A US motorcycle enthusiast has taken legal action after a bike seat gave him long lasting erections.

Straight from the ''only in America'' files comes this – a Californian man is suing BMW North America over a seat that gave him a severe case of priapism (A persistent, lasting erection) that has lasted for 20 months.

Henry Wolf claims his 1993 BMW motorcycle, or more specifically the bike's "ridge-like" seat, gave him a "severe case of priapism" when he took it for a four-hour ride on May 1, 2010, according to the Courthouse News Service.

Wolf is suing BMW North America and the seat's manufacturer, Corbin-Pacific, in a product liability lawsuit in the California Superior Court in San Francisco, claiming the "negligent design, manufacture and/or installation of the seat" has caused the painful condition.

Narrow, "banana" style seats similar to the one reportedly fitted to Wolf's motorcycle have been associated with problems such as genital numbness and even erectile dysfunction, however Wolf's case is the first known to tackle the opposite side of the problem.

The court notes state the Wolf "has been experiencing continuing problems since his motorcycle ride" including "substantial emotional and mental anguish" and the inability to engage in sexual activity.

Wolf is seeking compensation from both companies for emotional distress, lost wages and medical expenses.
