French Journalist Crashes Scooter off Pier and Into Boat

French auto publication Moto Journal is one of France's best and brightest two-wheeled enthusiasts magazines/websites. From scooters to bikes to motorcycles, two-wheeled vehicles are there pain et beurre (bread and butter). However, said publication was victim of a heartless saddlebag-on-journalist crime, and it was all captured on camera. Driving a brand new Yamaha FJR1300A, the journalist attempted to weave precariously throughout a pier, with less than satisfying results. The saddlebag, crashing into part of the pier sending the journalist and the scooter over the edge onto a docked boat. What looked like a fall of 10-15 feet, we don't think he landed too gently.
