Watch A French Journalist Drive A Motorcycle Off A Pier

Have you ever heard of the French motorcycle magazine Moto Journal? You have now, thanks to a reporter from that publication who inadvertently drove a 2013 Yamaha FJR1300A off of a dock and crashed it into a sailboat.

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 fenceless dock cruise.


Judging by the height of that fall — it had to be well over 10 feet — we're going to guess that the drop was uncomfortable. MJ took the mishap in stride, posting on YouTube themselves, which we think is really big of them. For this guy's next filmed ride, they might consider outfitting him with water wings or a life preserver, just to be on the safe side.
