The awkward video shows Nathan covering up his motorbike with a black sheet.
Wearing a helmet, he then turns to pull it down on the other side and walks straight into the lamppost.
A loud clanging sound is heard as the motorcyclist falls to the floor.
Nathan, who is from South Africa, told MailOnline: ‘No I never hurt myself luckily I was still wearing my helmet but the next morning I could feel I took a fall.’
He also said: ‘I parked my bike, I was locking it up (and) put [the] cover over, and was still looking at my bike when I started walking away. My go pro camera was still recording. I hadn’t turned it off yet.

The video was uploaded to Facebook with the caption ‘I had my first motorbike accident today’.
The fall happened this Sunday outside his home.
