Single rock to my visor over my rt eye. I'm sure I would have lost my eye if my visor had been up. I'm glad it didn't hurt.

some ahole flicked his cigarette at me at a red light and it hit my helmet...then turned off. I was on my way to work or I would have found a way to get revenge

That only hurt my ego though

I got sandblasted by dirt and gravel coming off of an 18wheeler this morning. I had to ride one handed and cover my neck until I got by him. I can't see how people endure things like that with no helmet, and no jacket.

Back when I lived in Virginia a car in front of my kicked up a piece of 2X4 that nailed me in my right ribs. I had my jacket on but the blow just about knocked me off. I was bruised for about 2 weeks. Not fun.

I would have been late for work that day.... I always have that fear of getting some fresh air and having a some dummy flick his and it land in my helmet...or a bee or wasp or something stingy.

Yeah 18 wheelers and SUV love to bring up debrie. I got hit in the center of my chest by a rock the size of a quater, the one time I had my jacket cracked open.

chunk of 18 wheeler tire (roughly 6 inch by 1 foot piece) flew up from the truck's wheels in front of me, spun like a frisbee right by my face (a few inches from it) That and a wheelbarrow are the craziest pieces of debris I've encountered so far. Other than that, I work in Fulshear, so dragonflies and other big bugs are a daily occurrence for me. Got hit by one today that I swear was a baby pterodactyl !!!!!
