V4 embarrassing personal question. Donít judge me

Ok guys. I completely apologies in advance to any women on here who readís this. It is embarrassing enough to ask but I donít know anyone else that rides a Ducati V4. Iíve asked my mates and there not taking me seriously. Does anyone else have an issue with there penis rubbing against the tank? For some reason and itís never happened to me on previous bikes but I get a constant erection (could be the vibration/ angle of the tank) when Iím riding on my V4 and my penis keeps getting caught/ moved in some strange position and causing me some real discomfort. Itís constantly rubs and causes like a friction burn effect without the actual friction burn, if that makes sense. It happens every time after around 20 mins. I constantly have to pull over and re-adjust myself and if Iím riding all day Im really sore by the end of the day. I swapped bikes for the day with my mate who has a R1 and Iím fine?? Could it come down to the position of the tank? Is it positioned any different than other bikes. Has anyone else had this sort of problem and have an answer??
Thanks from carlpretzel

You could try a less stiff suspension setting?

I Ride: Panigale V4 S
I find my V4's tank to be different for sure, this is the first bike I've had to put grip on the tank for street riding. I just don't have the same grip with my legs in the corners, so for extra confidence & grip I added the stomp grip.

While I don't find myself getting wood while riding, I definitely find myself backing up from the tank more often due to "junk discomfort". I ride in full leathers now, but my first couple hundred miles were a mixture of shorts and jeans. I found I was staying cooler with the leathers on, plus I'm safer and more confident/less fear of shredding myself in the event of a lay down. No matter which of the three methods of leg attire, I've always had less room for the junk while riding this tank.

I'd play with scooting your ass back a bit, wearing different clothing, and perhaps even a jock strap would work. In middle school I wore a jock strap a lot, because I was 100% wood all day, every day. It was that or I'd have to duct tape the shaft to my thigh!

Cut a hole in the tank and stick your penis inside it.

Agreed.


You could try comfort seat, tank grips (use your knees), rear sets.
Whatever you can do to sit farther back, keeping your junk from the tank.

or get some action more often so you're too busy riding fast
