Henry Wolf, a San Francisco resident is suing BMW of North America alleging that a ride gave him a two year erection, in a civil suit filed last week.
According to The Huffington post, Wolf is suing both the bike's manufacturer, BMW and the company that made the bike's after-market seat, Corbin-Pacific Inc., in a San Francisco Superior Court.
In his lawsuit, Wolf claims he was cruising on his 1993 BMW motorcycle equipped with a Corbin-Pacific seat on two back-to-back, immediately afterwards, he suffered a severe case of priapism (a persistent, lasting erection) allegedly caused by "the ridge-like seat on his motorcycle, negligently designed," said the report.
He allegedly took the ride in question on May 1, 2010 and has had the painful condition ever since.
The paper also reported that the suit argues that Wolf "is now unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish."
He is suing for personal injury, lost wages, product liability and emotional distress.
