The, err, alure of the motorcycle

Not known for making the most exciting motorcycles, BMW has triumphed over a lawsuit claiming one of their bikes left a man with a 2 day long erection. This via the Marin Independent Journal:
Wolf claimed he suffered an acute case of priapism -- a painfully prolonged erection -- after riding his 1993 BMW motorcycle for two hours. He claimed the vibrations in the "ridge-like" motorcycle seat caused the condition that lasted several days, so he sued BMW North America and the seat manufacturer, Corbin-Pacific Inc.
The jokes sort of write themselves.

Did they say the exact model number of the seat? And where you could get one? A friend asked me...

It gives a new meaning to riding "one up".

Did you get here on the BMW or are you just happy to see me?

I had a friend, a male nurse, decide on night to graphically explain how this is treated. Hint: it involves a big needle ,of the metal kind, having to withdraw the blood from the, ahem, affected region. And because of the structure and nature of said region, the needle has to be repositioned a few times.

I am not looking forward to the urology section of medical school.

I had a '79 Harley Sportster that I called the Milwaukee Vibrator. My girlfriend at the time would have to be helped off the back of it after a 20 minute ride. It would take another 10 minutes before she was composed enough to to walk. She always found an excuse for us to go riding.
