Pretty far drop into a boat's cockpit.. I hope he didn't end up with broken legs/hips

Thank goodness he got over the top of the bars and went feet first instead of head first!

Can you imagine this kind of off in Moab? Too many places where veering off the trail would result in a 500+ foot drop...........

He's lucky the bike didn't fall into the cockpit with him.

I tracked down a bit of back-story from a LiveLeak.com comment. Seems the rider (his name is Lolo) was being filmed for a French website, www.moto-journal.tv when it happened. Sounds like he's ok... only damage was to his pride.

Yes, that was a great video and the boat landing was pretty unusual. I guess you could use it in a sailboat commercial advertising how cool it is to jump in and take off in your rig. Much more fun than riding a moto around the docks and wishing you had a sailboat.

Want to kill some time while waiting during Christmas shopping? Been teaching my wife the finer points of pool, billiards, and snooker, so I installed this Android App and a similar one on the Windows system so I can kill time and she can learn angles and positions better:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...vn.pool9&hl=en
It has improved her full scale game as well.
Ignore the negative comments about the game on the source site. It works really well and perfect for teaching angles.
The best 'snooker' game I have found (for Windows) is this:
