Yep I hate bugs. Sux not being able to ride with visor up and it sux looking through a visor covered in squashed bugs. And my bike is covered too. I'm going to start carrying baby wipes.
I use Rain-X on my faceshields and all over the helmet.
I never need anything more than warm water to get everything off.
Then let it dry, then lightly buff with a fresh microfibre rag.
The bugs are not so bad when you know you can easily get them all off.
Of course, the clothing aspect is not so easy!
So many bugs here!
The grasshoppers in summer are the worst. Thousands on the roads.
My local store/Cafe owner is a bit of a hippie. Has chickens freely wandering about. They all hang out the front waiting for vehicles to pull up. They feast upon the grilled grasshopper buffet that is plastered to the front of every vehicle. You can see all those greedy chickens lining up as a car pulls in. It's like one of those cleaning stations under the ocean where little fish clean sharks and such.
I watched a documentary about insect population's declining around the world.
I think the bugs have all flown here.
Something large and full of foul smelling juice detonated on my sunglasses filling my helmet with the smell of old carrion.
We also struggle with bugs here in Montréal. Close to sunset it gets ridiculous. Everything is coated, jacket, pants, neck, gloves, mirrors, grips, levers, fork legs, fender, tank, you name it. I'll try the Rain-X on my face-shield, hopefully it makes a noticeable difference !
