Stop Riding Immediately?

Hmmm. I find this troubling:

A new study revealed that men who ride motorcycles are at risk of impotence and urinary problems, possibly because the vibration of the engine damages nerves in their penises.

The study by doctors in Japan was published in the International Journal of Impotence Research.

It found that out of 234 motorcyclists who rode about three hours every weekend, 69 percent reported mild to severe erectile dysfunction.

I’m not gonna say these scientists are full of it, but, well, if this was the case–I mean, seven out of ten motorcyclists with limp noodles–you’d’ve thought there’d be more, you know, talk about it.

I’m not going to go into any detail about the state of my rod, but I haven’t seen any…changes.

I dunno.  Something doesn’t sound right about this.
