Man sues BMW for 20-month erection after bike ride

Quote:
A California man has sued BMW North America and a motorcycle-seat maker claiming that a four-hour round-trip ride on his 1993 BMW bike with a "ridge-like" seat gave him "a severe case of priapism (a persistent, lasting erection)" that's lasted 20 months and counting.

This will be an interesting lawsuit to watch. If BMW does not successfully challenge this, they could be paying a stiff settlement.

I think that is going pretty hard on a Company with a long lasting reputation of satisfying it's loyal followers.

Sound like this will be a long and hard case, lets hope for a firm decision by the courts, that will provide relief to the plaintiff.

If I were them, I'd beg for a televised trial and plead guilty to knowingly manufacturing bikes that lead to priapism.

They'll sell more motorcycles than they could ever imagine.

The rub is that the plaintiff has to give the defendant a head's up without yanking the rug from under their case.
