That is some way to enter a sailboat!

Permisson to come aboard?

I have read the Gold Wing owners manual, and I am pretty sure that is not how to park them.

One comment on that board was. "That will buff out." Lol

I can hear it now calling the insurance company, "My boat was moored along the seawall and this motorcycle just came out of nowhere and ran into my boat!"

Good thing the sailboat was there, he may be bruised & sore from landing in it, but would probably of drowned with all his gear on. If riding near water he might consider a PFD in the future.

It was a sign from God to buy a sailboat!

The guy is having that much trouble on land, you really think a boat is a good idea?

Although,... Out in the middle of the ocean, there is less to hit.
