Video: French Journalist has FJR1300 accident

One of MCN's French colleagues from Moto journal had an unfortunate accident last week while out testing the new Yamaha FJR1300. While riding down a pier, he inadvertently clipped one of his pannier off a bollard, which was just enough to send him out of control... The journalist escaped luckily, with just bruising and an injured thumb.

Definitely an "oh ****, oh ****, oh ****" moment, that. Lucky he didn't hurt himself more.

Had he been wearing a Hi-Viz jacket, a restriction kit on the bike with anti tampering devices, an alchohol detection kit and pannier insurance cover, this accident would never have happened.

Why 'accident' ?

Why is the term 'accident' put in quotes by MCN?   Do they suspect this dude of riding off the docks deliberately?
