Perhaps I should have titled it "The Dog Leaves America"????

No, that would not be nice, D.

The camera work is much better than the motorcycle riding.

P.S. I think the guy may have just installed his cases and forgot they were there. Something like that would happen to me. I tend to forget things these days. Could happen to anyone really. hope the guy didn't get hurt too bad.

Reminds me of one of my single handed half drunk docking attempts at happy hour one night. Hint, never jump to the dock...back out and retry the landing so you can step off
About 50 people watched me fall backwards off the dock after coming up just short of a perfect landing. one guy asked if I needed a hand while I was treading water with docklines in hand. I didn't hang around since the inlet water is toxic.
Luckily this guys bike landed on a solid dock. I could see that happening to me.

Wow. He was going at such a slow speed! Excellent dismount though. 9/10.

Why would anyone be filming this? Take away the bike and you have somebody filming a boat. A moored boat. Not exactly riveting entertainment, even for a sailing freak. I am not for one minute suggesting that it was set up, but, once again, why film a static boat?

Maybe the guy wanted him to film him riding in on his new bike?

Funny as ****, but then on second look as MG mentions - perfectly filmed, a steady pan as the rider falls into the boat, the zoom out at the end, and all the while not a single "oh ****e!" comment from the camera man? Sorry, still funny, but definitely staged.
