    Motorcycle rider falls off dock onto boat - GIF

    Motorcycle rider falls off dock onto boat. Could've been much worse.

    Probably lucky for the boat owner that the bike missed the boat.

    The separation of the rider from the bike was almost perfect, landing him in the boat in an upright position and NOT pinched between the bike and hull. Judging by the traffic sign in the background and the vehicle plates, I'd guess this is in Europe?

    The flag in the top left, by the tile roof, (you can only see it if you click on the full screen button) is a white stripe over red stripe, which is Poland

    Well, this got my curiosity up, so I hunted for 5 minutes until I found the "original" version with some ham added. This was a French moto journalist intent on doing a photo shoot of the new Yamaha that was loaned to him for the shoot. Pretty creative how they built onto the incident to salvage it. This happened at Port Saint Martin in Paris (their flag colors are blue, white and red).

    Potentially serious injury involved. And horribly expensive property damage, no doubt.
