Default Bug in Gas Tank ! !

I was getting some gas after a long ride in the mountains and dang if a bug of some kind flew into where I had the gas nozzle and down into the tank he went. Oh well maybe the premium gas will eat his butt up. Just hope it doesn't clog up the fuel filter. Small bug but it still could cause a problem i guess.

In my mind...that bug jumped in the tank to; 1. find out what was in store for him in some far off future or 2. commune with its long gone ancestors

An archaeologist will dig up your bike some day in the distant future and write his dissertation about how we threw a bug into our gas tanks as a good luck charm to ward off bug splats on our windshields!
