That vid's been around the block a while, apparently a moto-mag media type who took a test ride.

Yes, no matter how many times I see it I remain hopeful that he will miss the boat and go "kerplunk".

Yep... and these saddlebags don't stick out nearly as far as the camel trunks on the sides of some of those BMW GSs. As a neophyte lane splitter in CA, those GS trunks sticking out there were giving me nightmares driving between the cars in NorCal.

The question is: What was he thinking? 🤔
And why did that person stop filming the event? And for the riderís sake, let us hope that he was able to walk away from the boat...Too bad for the bike...Splashing a perfectly well built FJR 🏍 😓

It appears the right hand saddlebag made it through without a scratch.

That was a Gen. 1 and the saddlebags stuck out even further than they do now.
