Back in 2012, our own Chuck Vossler reported on an interesting lawsuit filled against BMW. Two years ago a 52 year old male has sued BMW of North America for a four hour ride on a 19 year old K1100RS BMW motorcycle that had an aftermarket seat (from Corbin-Pacific) that allegedly caused a priapism, you know the prolonged erection lasting greater than four hours that Viagra disclaimers have made famous.
He asked for compensation for lost wages, medical expenses and emotional distress from both companies.
Nearly two years later, according to Visor Down, Judge James J. McBride decided that the case didn’t have enough supporting evidence and was thrown out. Based on a testimony by a urologist the court rejected previous claims of a neurologist who claimed the motorcycle’s vibration caused the disorder.
Furthermore, even Corbin-Pacific CEO Mike Corbin had to testify in this bizarre lawsuit.
