This is one of the many reasons I wear a full faceshield helmet. I was driving home from work on Friday riding my '00 ST1100, and all of sudden SPLAT!....a giant bug hits my faceshield on my helmet. I was going about 50 mph and the bug exploded on my faceshield! It hit so hard that the bug sounded as if it was made of metal. I always wear a helmet and I was even more grateful that I wear a full faceshield. If that would have hit my in the face it would have caused some serious pain! Anyone else been smacked in the face by a bug? or been saved by a faceshield/goggles?
