A Most Dramatic Boarding

The folks over at Moto Journal certainly have a good sense of humor. One of their journalists, identified only as Lolo, was captured on video taking a tumble over the edge of a wharf in St. Martin en Ré, France, after clipping a post with his saddlebag. The rider took a hard fall 10-15 feet into the cockpit of a sailboat — appropriately named Jangle — while his Yamaha smashed to the concrete beside it. Presumably the biker — if not the bike — emerged relatively unscathed as the magazine featured the video on their website.

Someone really needs to teach Lolo the etiquette of boarding other people’s boats.
