I've had 2 "bee" encounters.
The first was wearing a full coverage helmet but it had no visor. A yellow jacket went right between my face and the helmet next to my eye.
It wound up almost back at my ear. I could feel it trying to crawl around and it's wings trying to buzz. Whipped into a school parking lot and removed my helmet faster than I ever had.
Fortunately the wasp flew away as soon as the helmet came off. He didn't sting me, I couldn't believe it!

The second was cruising along about 60 and apparently ran into a honeybee going the same direction as me. I felt a burning on my neck. Reached up, felt something there and grabbed it to get off of me. Turned out what I grabbed was his stinger with venom sac. As I removed it, it injected more venom into me. It hurt 10 times worse at that point.

Anyway the moral of the story is, don't wreck just pull over and do what ya gotta do. And don't let the girl on the back see you cry... even a little.

Once I was on my way home from work, guy on cruiser pulls up next to me. Typical HD "biker" guy; fat, beard, denim vest. He smiles at me, showing off the bug in his teeth. I raised my visor so he could hear me laughing at him, and I'll be damned if a roach doesn't fly in.


Know how they say to stay in 1st when waiting at a light? Not always such a good idea.

Never had one hit the boys. Couple years ago i had just left the house, still had my visor up about a block away and got hit right between the eyes. Hurt like . Rode back home and pulled the stinger out. Waited for a few minutes until i could see again and rolled out. This time with my visor down lol

Winner Winner! I my dinner laughing.lol.

Worse part was he was stinging me and the wind was whipping him around, dragging the stinger with it. Once I got out of the curve and got him off it felt like the stinger was still there. I was tempted to drop my pants on the side of 159 and dig it out but waited till I got to 71.

Few weeks ago me and Psycho Pete are doing a load out (taking down/out) of lighting gear for some local millionaire's wedding. I'm 3 levels up on a ladder, on scaff, which is on stage decking, which is over a pool in a tent. I reach up to the perlon to have a hand hold as I'm cutting zip ties down and of course, leaning out over the edge and put my hand right on a bee that was hiding in the tent. Good thing my undies were already dirty. I didnt cry, promise...

Had one fly up my (offroad)shorts riding the woods near ATL.....inner thigh stings suxxors! That same day, I broke two fingers on a fall over , my knee pad shifted on a front end washout and gouged my knee up pretty good, blood loss. Broke my clutch lever on another fall over, almost overheated my brain and had to soak in a lake for an hour. All the while, some of the top rally racers in Ga. laughing their off.

This was all from 9am to 11 am....

Lesson learned.....never ride with a scalloped front D606...in the Ga hill country....

I have never lived that day down.
