Motorcycle vs Boat accidents don’t tend to happen all that often. Even less common is to capture the event on film. And to top off the trifecta of weirdness, the rider is a professional motorcycle journalist. The incident occurred in France when the magazine Moto Journal were testing a Yamaha FJR 1300 around the port of Saint Martin .
While trying to navigate along the edge of the port, the rider clips a metal pole with one of the bike’s luggage panniers, knocking the bike off course and over the wall. As the bike heads south the rider bails off and neatly lands in the back of a yacht moored below.
Before anyone gets worried, the rider wasn’t hurt. And he even manages to cheerfully comment on the YouTube video his co-workers kindly posted up for him under the highly accurate title “Lolo fell in the Port of Saint Martin on a Yamaha FJR 1300″. They’re even debating on whether to create a new section of the magazine in honor of him called “Lolo is a Jerk”! Oh who doesn’t love office humor.
