Bikes and piers

Keep your bike off piers unless you know exactly where you are going and even then it should be done extremely cautiously. Watched this multiple times before I caught the left hard bag getting hooked by a post and ripped off the bike. Warning, it doesn't end well.....

True, but bet the bike got a nice saltwater douche and he got a few broken bones the way he landed in the cockpit of that sailboat....

Re: Bikes and piers

The guy's name is Lolo Cochet , and he makes the funniest motorcycle videos .
If you can understand French , I suggest you do a Google search under his name , or under Moto Journal .

Here's his visit to the Ural factory in Siberia .
