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.
