Patented: The Motorcycle Urinal
And then there’s the motorcycle urinal.
Patented by inventor Anthony J. Moley of Hollister, Calif., the urinal uses a replica motorcycle handlebar with a throttle-activated flush valve. Simply twisting the throttle flushes the urinal through a simple linkage system.
Motion sensors on the wall-mounted fixture detects when someone is about to use the urinal and activates the audio system to play engine noises. The engine noises can also be played when the throttle is twisted and the urinal is flushed.
The device also includes two mirrors, a horn and working turn signals, you know, for those seeking a more immersive motorcycle experience when emptying one’s bladder.
The patent also includes a diagram for the system deployed on a toilet rather than a urinal.
