i'm curious why was this filmed & who did the filming... maybe it was the guy's wife or something filming a virgin ride on his new bike.
"A reporter for Moto Journal, a French publication, is becoming famous for all the wrong reasons. The motorcycle journalist, named Lolo, not only crashed his Yamaha while being videotaped during a waterfront ride, he tumbled off a dock and landed in a sailboat 10-15 feet below.
Presumably, only his pride was injured because Moto Journal went public with the incident by posting the accompanying video, perhaps assuming (correctly) that it'd go viral.
Writes Asphalt and Rubber: "You have to give the folks at Moto Journal some credit for having some good humor and posting this video up to YouTube. No doubt, they will be the brunt of every other motorcycle publication's joke for the next week."
Adds Jalopnik: "Word to the wise: Watch those saddlebags--they can be like side-mounted grappling hooks, and the same thing could happen to you on your next precarious fence-less dock cruise."
