Excited about (by) that new BMW?

Well it turns out there may be a good reason.

He has now launched a lawsuit for a “persistent erection” seeking compensation for emotional distress, medical expenses and “general damages”. No mention of excessive wear and tear, although I guess that could come under general damages.

Corbin claims there is no truth to the rumour that they have now sold out of that particular seat model since the story broke.

    Classic!

  5. Do they make one to fit my bike with the exacting measurements? The pillow cushioning looks excellant.

  6. Geoff - The photo is just for illustration purposes, but it seemed appropriate.

    WooleyBugger - I think Corbin might have a winner on its hands.
