Default Nothing Worse than..........

Nothing worse than getting bee stung, unless it happens while on two wheels doing 60 mph on a curvy county road.

Had one get trapped under my shirt this morning, managed to light me up pretty good (several times) before I could find a place to stop, remove my gloves so I could get my leather off, then my shirt. Bet he passing cagers wondered if I was doing a strip tease.

$20,000 and 3000 miles DO NOT make you a biker

wait till you get one up your pant leg doing 60 and no place to pull over. Drop your pants and look at all the stings is best you can do. Lot of horn honking for sure

I once had a large bumble bee sucked up inside my full face helmet. Slowing down and gently taking it off was one of the worst 3 hours (it seemed) I've spent. Wasps can sting more than once and they are a real problem here this summer. I haven't been nailed yet but both my grandsons received multiple stings and chased half a block when they went looking for the football in the wrong place.

Caught a giant queen bee about 3/4 inch in diameter in the face shield at 160 mph on my old busa. Splattered all the way down the front of my jacket and all over the tank. Couldn't see anything. Glad it wasn't a pigeon. Not funny

I have to grow old but I don't have to grow UP.thumb up. 2010 Jackpot.

Just a few weeks ago we were heading to Port Dover for Friday the 13th and being chilly out I had one of those thin under the helmet snowmobile masks on. We were on the Front rd (real twisty) mid turn and a friggen yellow jacket got under my mask by my eye and started to use my face as a pin cushion (stung 6 X's) by the time I had a chance to pull over safely the f**ker was in my ear canal. I looked like friggen Rocky from the movie the Mask (the Cher flick) for the next week...

I thought I was going to die the day I was on a mountain road with a Tracker-Trailer on my butt and we're running 55 and a Black Wasp got until my shirt and started tap-dancing across my chest, you talk about scared...no where to pull off, I couldn't evening slow down, I had to just start beating on my chest in hopes of killing the sucker before he was totally empty...I had three nice red burning bumps on me but I got the sucker..never want that to happen again... A guy told me to start wearing my shirt tail out cause if a bee gets in and can't get out they get ever pissed, I couldn't argue with him on this one.

Had that happen years ago out trail riding when I was a kid. Luckily It was someplace I could stop immediately He hit me in the chest and went down my shirt. Only got me once before I killed him. It would really suck getting one on your face.

Half my face was a real mess, it sucked. I couldn't pull over for probably 2mins before I slaughtered that little f**ker on the side of the road...
