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.

Cats' whiskers

As an FJR1300 owner, one of the things I like about it is that the mirrors are like cats' whiskers - if the mirrors won't fit through a gap then neither will the panniers; if the mirrors do fit, then so will the rest of the bike. I wonder if he was thinking at that exact moment: "Good thing this bollard is small - any taller and I would have cracked the mirror on it." ;-) On the plus side at least he wasn't badly hurt - could have been serious or even deadly if he'd gone in the water with the bike on top of him. And also, I now know just how strong the panniers themselves are. ;-)
