Caught a bee to the forehead...

  1. 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. :shocked:

    Bird didn't survive.

    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.

    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.:supergrin:

    The last thing to pass through the mind of that bee as he impacted your forehead at 70 MPH was his BEE-HIND! :rofl:

    Does that give you some thoughts about wearing a helmet?

    We'd like to avoid going to your funeral!

    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! :wavey:

    "Bumble Elephant" :rofl::rofl::rofl:


    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!

    Shun him!

    I wore an open face helmet until I encountered my first rainstorm. After that, Full Face was the only way to go.
     
  16. That's nothing.

    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.
    Bee gone.:crying:
