  I know I'll take a lot of flak for this but my usual riding attire is shorts, a t-shirt and sneakers. Sunglasses but no helmet.
 
  let the bashing begin!

Not me... I'm not going to bash you.

I'll let the pavement do the talking.    ;D

Kit, let one bee fly up your shorts leg while riding and you will never do that again.

Kit- You can do what you want to.  I don't think it's the smartest decision.  My father-in-law does the same thing and I think it's a bad idea for him too. All I know is I road with just a helmet and a tanktop and you can still see where the roadrash was on my left arm after sliding down the freeway at about 40 mph.  Since then I always wear full gear.

I got one in the neck once. Just suddenly felt an unbelievable pain in my neck that would not stop burning. When I got to work I took off my jacket and the bee fell on my desk.

I have had a bee fly up my jacket sleeve. Then I also had one turn itself inside out on my bare arm. That one made a scar from the stinger
I have big plans...

Hornet to the chestplate, here.  That was back when I lived on the east coast, and rode a Vulcan.  Like getting punched.


This is my shield. I bear it before me into battle, but it is not mine alone. It protects my brother on my left. It protects my city. I will never let my brother out of its shadow nor my city out of its shelter. I will die with my shield before me facing the enemy.

gotta love the way these threads stay on topic.... :o... Not complaining at all.... just shows how easy it is to talk here... almost qualifies as a chat room.. ;)
And to think that some people want it to change.. :rolleyes:

A few years ago I was riding at night and something went between the mirror and windshield and hit me in the chest at around 40mph..I didn't know what it was but there were feathers flying around....I turned around and found a dead burrowing owl laying in the road...the next day I had a bruise that looked like I had been hit with a softball.

I know that I'm as guilty as the next guy... maybe more, but.... this thread is starting to sound a lot like these posts belong on the other thread - "So what happened to you while riding?"


Maybe this thread has run it's course??

Actually this one has turned more into the thread about what objects you've been hit by when riding.

I would never ride the Raider with those!  I can't even ride it in shorts.  Being on the short side my legs are too close to various very hot parts on the right side of the engine :)  Some days stopped at lights in the summer it even hurts through jeans.
