... At 70mph on the motorcycle.
That will leave a mark.
I took a few, but my most memorable incident happened on a mountain bike. I was cruising along at about 25 or so when a fairly large bug of some sort flew in my mouth and went right down my throat.
My head and a bird came together one sunny, summer afternoon whilst I was cruising on my CB 750.
Learned that my helmet was worthy and a bird to the head will knock you silly.
Bird didn't survive.
A) still waiting for that to happen... My little brother hit a bat with the headlight on his Suzuki
B) what year CB750? Mine is an 82
Head on or pointy bit?
Yellow jacket up the pants leg is a learning experience. Knee swole* up so big I had to cut my Wranglers off.
*(Where do you think new words come from? Pain, that's where.)
Pointy bit... It must've just been a glancing blow for me (not much venom got in or something) cuz it mostly just itched, and the swelling was pretty minor. Still hurt like a ***** at first though.
The little crystals that pop off tree branches can get your attention too while carving a logging road on the snowmobile.
I heard I hit the ground pretty hard with my noggin on the MTB, but I don't remember anything until coming home from the hospital. I guess I asked "what happened" about every 20 min for the next 2 days.
The last thing to pass through the mind of that bee as he impacted your forehead at 70 MPH was his BEE-HIND!
Does that give you some thoughts about wearing a helmet?
We'd like to avoid going to your funeral!
ReyFufu does the 'Bee Dance' . . .
Yeah, i know that hurts.
So does hail.
I do wear a helmet, mine is an open-face.
1) Glad you wear a helmet.
2) Time to get a new one.
We were riding one day and my buddy, with a full face helmet, visor slightly open, had a bee fly inside his helmet! I was slightly ahead of him and I noticed him getting really small in my mirrors! So, I stopped and waited. When he pulled up and explained what happened, I almost fell off my bike laughing! Didn't hurt him, but made him use up all of his brakes to get stopped and snatch off his helmet! Later, I had a bumble elephant (felt like it) hit me in the chest at about 70 MPH. Dayum!
In the fall and early spring, I usually wear a neoprene mask for both the cold and the bugs. Covers everything but my cheekbones. Guess where I got hit by a junebug at 60 mph?
Reyfufu can be easily characterized as a BEE MURDERER!
I wore an open face helmet until I encountered my first rainstorm. After that, Full Face was the only way to go.
I know a bee that was just cruising along sniffing flowers and grooving in the sunshine when he got hit by a motorcyclist who must have been doing about 70 mph.
Motorcyclist left scene.
Wouldn't that be considered Beeslaughter?
