Lol! If that's true I can just imagine the conversation post accident: "Please tell me that you didn't get that on film" "Yeah, I got it all, and I posted it on Youtube" I'd be well pissed off!

A video like this one is why the Internet was invented.

I like my bikes like I like my women: heavy and slow.

It's one of the MotoJournal guys. They have some super awesome videos on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/user/MotoJournal. I'm guessing they were filming a segment when this happened. All the guys are awesome riders, and I suggest checking out some of their videos... they're in French, but the riding is so good that it doesn't matter!

Here's one of my favorites that has English subs:

That was quite good. Thank you.

It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid

I think it was staged. What was he gonna do when he got to the garbage cans? There's no room to go around there.

Whomever said all good things in moderation certainly never rode a bad ass Bonneville

If if was staged, he has bigger balls than me. That could've easily gone south. Hang on - Why.T.F. would you plough a new bike into a (expensive?) boat and risk serious injury just to make me laugh at you on-line?

I don't think it was staged.

Me either. It looks like he hit rather hard too. But man is that great camera work or what!

Well that would make more sense - a professional production that went very wrong. Back to being pretty funny, so long as no one was hurt of course.
