We didn’t write that headline. We also didn’t write the story below–CBS did.So don’t blame us.
And don’t try to tell us this isn’t a business story. Of course it is. BMW may have to pay some guy a settlement because he says his BMW motorcycle has given him a “non-stop erection for 20-months.”
SAN FRANCISCO (WWJ) – BMW North America has probably had to deal with plenty of unusual lawsuits, but one filed last week may be a first — a California man says the seat on his motorcycle has given him an erection he just can’t shake.
Henry Wolf of California is suing BMW America and aftermarket seatmaker Corbin-Pacific claiming his issue began after a four-hour ride on his 1993 BMW motorcycle, with a ridge like seat. Wolf is seeking compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, emotional distress and what he calls “general damage.”
He said he’s had the erection non-stop for 20 months. And it comes with another side effect: The lawsuit says Wolf is “now is unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish.”
