BMW motorcycle accused of causing permanent erection

The world is full of strange news nowadays. A few weeks ago, we had a case whereby a woman in China killed a shop owner by squeezing his testicles due to a dispute over parking space for her scooter. Now, we have a man in the US who is suing BMW for causing an erection which lasted for two years.

The plaintiff, by the name of Henry Wolf, is claiming that a four-hour ride in his BMW bike has caused him two years of continuous erection. He alleged that the Corbin-Pacific ridge-like seat is to be blamed.

The after-market seat is usually fitted with the aim of making the motorcycle more comfortable. Dr Michael Lutz from the Michigan Institute of Urology told a US radio station that Its been long-known that prolonged compression of the neurovascular supply to the penis, whether it be on a bicycle seat or some other device, can actually cause prolonged numbness of the genitalia. The condition is known as priapism. Wolf is now seeking compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, emotional distress and general damages in his lawsuit filed in San Francisco.

Although some may find the news funny, but it is no laughing matter. When I am doing my regular weekend runs at East Coast Park or Upper Thomson Road, I often see packs of cyclist doing their weekend training. I hope that they have adequate protection in addition to the headgear.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
