Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Lost In Last Year’s Tsunami Washed Up on a Canadian Island. It was an about 4,000 miles (6,400 kilometers) wild ride. The rusted bike was found in a large white container where its owner, Ikuo Yokoyama, had kept it. He was located through the license plate number, Fuji TV reported Wednesday. “This is unmistakably mine. It’s miraculous” Yokoyama told Nippon TV when shown photos of the motorcycle. Yokoyama lost three members of his family in the March 11, 2011, Tsunami, and is now living in temporary housing. The motorcycle will be shipped back to Japan and the shop that sold it to Yokoyama would help with paperwork and storage.

California Man Sues BMW And Corbin For Non-Stop Erection: The news is not a joke, but I will let you make the jokes about this true story. A California man named Henry Wolf is complaining that he can’t stop an erection since he did a 4-hour ride on  1993 BMW motorcycle equipped with an after-market Corbin seat. So, he is suing both BMW and Corbin, seeking compensation for medical expenses (!) lost wages (!!), emotional damage (!!!) and “Genneral Damage” (!?!?) The man in question states that his erection has already lasted 20 months, that he can’t get “normal” sexual relations, suffering substantial emotional and mental anguish.” If it is medically proven that both men and women can suffer from prolonged numbness after compressing genitalia nerves, but an erection for 20 months? Must have been a Corbin Viagra model.

    Thanks to Mike and his stimulating Corbin seats life is exciting to say the least.

    Always thought it was the food and exercise keeping me in great shape? All this time its been the seat?

    Lookin forward to a no-class action law suit to follow the latest news.

    Calling all concerned enthusiasts?

    We might consider taking up a collection for the poor soul on the BMW…

    Is the seat for sale and will his wife let it go?

    Thank You Mr. Wizard…..

    Hmm, Mike-ya ever considered Corbin HATS?

    Bert always wanted a pair of authentic cowboy boots, so, seeing some on sale, he bought them and wore them home.

    Walking proudly, he sauntered into the kitchen and said to his wife, “Notice anything different about me?”

    Margaret looked him over. “Nope.”

    Frustrated, Bert stormed off into the bathroom, undressed and walked back into the kitchen completely naked except for the boots.

    Again he asked Margaret, a little louder this time, “Notice anything different now?”

    Margaret looked up and down and said in her best deadpan, “Bert, what’s different? It’s hanging down today, it was hanging down yesterday, it’ll be hanging down again tomorrow.”

    Furious, Bert yelled, “AND DO YOU KNOW WHY IT’S HANGING DOWN, MARGARET?”

    “Nope. Not a clue”, she replied.

    “IT’S HANGING DOWN, BECAUSE IT’S LOOKING AT MY NEW BOOTS!!!!”

    Without skipping a beat Margaret replied, “Shoulda bought a hat, Bert. Shoulda bought a hat.”

    Richard. Yes, there was an issue with those readers using some older versions of Internet Explorer. Microsoft acknowledged the problem. We found a way to resolve it. But to everybody: upgrade your PC browser….
