Hit by bee or wasp!

Riding 2 up yesterday with my wife, coming into suburbia, we thought we'd stop off at the supermarket on our way home. Doing about 30mph, I lift my visor. I do wear shaded safety glasses instead of normal sunglasses as well as a balaclava.
So the only exposed skin in a slin slither just above and below by glasses.

Next thing I see is this yellow blur and "smack!", nails be right on my lower forehead! Man, it hurt!! Luckily managed to keep calm and the bike under control, whilst trying to get the bastard of me and out of my helmet.

Stopped in one piece in front of the supermarket, took helmet, etc off, found no evidence of what it was (bee or wasp), no stinger, just a small red hole were he punctured the skin. Felt like brain freeze the rest of the day and slightly swollen this morning (down across bridge of nose) with mild pain across both temples.

Any other bug, etc. stories?

I've had a few fights with bugs on the bike but I always won.

The worst was when I was driving in my truck one day. Short sleeve shirt, window down, arm on windowseal, wasp went right up my sleeve and stung the piss out of me a couple of times. The only choice I had was to smash it as it's getting one last sting in. Hurt like hell.

2009 was a bad year for me with insects...

Last spring I was riding on an absolutely gorgeous sunny day, and had a wasp impact my knee as I was stopping for a red light. Damn thing hung on and proceeded to sting me half a dozen times quickly on my kneecap, through my jeans. it got one or two in before I even knew it was there...after I saw him, he died abruptly from a sharp impact from my glove....bastard!

several weeks later, I had one zip into the gap at my collar and sting the crap out of my collarbone.

Then, this fall...I was out running errands, returning home...Like Farab, I had my visor cracked open with oakleys on...my visor was only open about 1/2 an inch, and a wasp blipped in through the opening and bounced off my shades. I thought it had fallen back out of the helmet, and so I continued home which was only another minute or so away. When I parked the bike and started to take my helmet off, the thing stung me along my jawline and then fell to the pavement where I squished him. In the meantime, I ws in serious pain! That really hurt! my jaw swelled up and I had a goose egg almost as big as my fist on the side of my face for about a week...it took 3 weeks for it to go away completely.

I was really hoping that riding a Hornet would inspire some loyalty, but apparently the bugs feel differently about it!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

I've had two memorable events with a stinging insects while wearing a helmet twice in my life, so far. Once I was wearing a full facebell helmet while riding a minibike around a track I had made in my yard, over and over I rode that little bike until a mean azzed ground hornet swarmed up into the helmet and before I could get that damned thing stopped, I watched it repeately sting my right cheek. I swelled up more than Rocky Balboa.
The other time I was in Portsmouth VA riding to the Navy yard when a bee or wasp hit me head on and wedged itself between my helmet's chinstrap and my neck. Talk about swelling up!! The Navy doc gave me a No Duty chit on what would of been an otherwise long boring duty day while we, USS Coral Sea CV43, were in drydock.
I suppose I was lucky?
That was back in the day when some residents in the Tidewater area had the "DOGS & SAILORS KEEP OFF THE GRASS" signs. Far as I know, they still might.

Several years ago I was cruising down interstate on my ole XS1100 and a cardinal flew in front of me and stopped midair to avoid semi in other lane. He swung around other way and I nailed him with front brake master cylinder. Blood and feathers coated my jacket on right arm. Not a bug, but still a good bike collision story.

I ran into a hornet years ago, hit me square in the adams apple. Kept riding, about a minute or two later the bastard started stinging me by my belly button. Grabbed and killed it with my left hand, reached asrost to grab the clutch with my right hand and stopped the bike. Try steering like that!

I took the little lady out for a ride on the 919 a while back, after a long ride through the country I took the back way home..........while turning onto our street she screamed in pain. We get home and I look at her arm to realize a bee had stung her. It swelled up a bit, thank God it wasn't a wasp as we would have been heading to the ER.

twice in my life I've had a bee (yellow jacket or what ever) get stuck between my helmet and my temple. I always wear sunglasses under my visor, both times I had the visor open on hot days. Both times I stopped, used the sunglass arm to "dig" the little bastard out. Didn't get stung either time. How does that happen twice to the same guy? Also had one fly down my jacket, that one hurt. Nice welt where he stung me.

How bout a good dog story?? My best friend has a nice straight stretch of road in front of his house that we test bikes with (plug checks, lil street racing, etc.) Anyways, couple years ago a buddy of mine was stretching legs of his zx9. We were out by the road watching him come toward us and this mutt ran out like he was going to bite him and he hit bike right behind front wheel and exhaust/engine nailed him. That was the quickest I've ever seen anything die in my life. I swear dog was dead the instant he hit bike. He skidded (lifelessly) bout 30 feet or so before coming to a stop. Bobby never missed a beat, upshifted and kept hauling ass.

Is she allergic?

A while back me and a riding buddy rode through a little swarm of bees (well definately enough of them so that you could see you were going to hit them), bee splatter over everything. Luckily not one managed to get in.

When I was deciding whether or not to buy the 919 / Hornet, I discovered a Hornet/Wasp in the folds of my jacket zipper, took it as a little sign!

Ouch! Sorry to hear that. I hate bees with a passion.

A friend of mine was riding in shorts and a yellow jacket blew up his leg and stung/bit him several times in the crotch area before he could get stopped. Funniest thing I've seen in a while. I told him that is only one reason to never ride in shorts.

I actually was riding down a hill and saw a pack of crows feasting on whatever delicious roadkill was down there. I proceded to honk the horn to scare them off. Well, all but one decided to take off. The last remaining one thought he could stare me down. So, as I am getting closer I get the gut feel
ing that a-hole is going to fly right at me. My feeling was right. About 3 feet from the bird it takes flight and is coming staight at my head. Since I was riding with my visor up I didn't feel like making out with that crow. I let off the gas, threw a good staight right and socked that crow right in the beak. It proceded to bounce off my tank flapped around in the steet for about a second before the car behind me ended its' miserable existance. Since then I guess the word got around cause haven't any other issues with animals crossing my path.

wasp stings and bee stings are similar. the wasp however can sting repeatedly due to the barbs on the stinger that are strong enough to move up and down through the human skin. the bees are not. they sting once and leave their stinger and venom sac behind and die. sometropical species of bees have the same stinger as a wasp or yellow jacket. my 2cents

similar...but with a very important difference! which is exactly why I loathe wasps, while I don't mind bees very much at all.

OK, not a motorcycle story, but pertinent. 1965, I was 9. We visited Grandma in Oklahoma. She had a bee hive. I had dirt clods. I gave the beehive the dirt clods and walked away around the corner of the house. I heard buzzing. Lot's and lot's of buzzing. I got stung by nine bees on my head and one of them crawled into my ear. I was screaming so loud and my Dad said "Dammit Michael. Quit hitting David"
Mike replied, "Dad, it's not me! David is covered in bees!!!"

Gramps pulled a plug of tobacco out of his mouth and wiped it all over the bee stings and Dad got a match stick and fished the bee out of my ear but not before it stung me in there.

Aunt Louise, a nurse gave me a shot at her office. My head swelled up so much that my sisters and brothers wouldn't go with me anywhere unless I wore a ball cap and sunglasses.

I did NOT give the bees anything else on that trip.

16 years old, got my squid suit on, riding a 1974 Kawi enduro down the road in front of my house. Bee flies in the neck of my shirt and stings me just above the collar bone. I park in the driveway and head right to the bathroom mirror to see the swelling, at which point I hear buzzing from somewhere in my shirt. So I start punching the shit out of myself to crush the little bastard before he gets me again.

Couple years ago, much better geared for riding. Pull into the parking lot at work and feel a pinch in the center of my chest. Figured it was my dog tags grabbing chest hair. Park the bike and feel the pinch again so I wiggle around my neck chain. Take off my helmet and feel another pinch, this time followed by a buzzing sound coming from within my leather jacket, fully zipped with snapped mandarin collar. So I proceed to punch the shit out of myself trying to kill the hornet that apparently teleported into my jacket and was stinging me.

I have no Idea what type of 'lil green bugs they were but TJ and I found a mile long (seemed like it) stretch where we got slathered ! My mesh jacket was fuzzy with green ass sticking out all over it and we could barely see through painted visors. We get to a traffic light, raise the visors and Tony says: Are you thinking what I'm thinking ? Absolutely ! We cross the intersection to the burger thing for a scrub down.

I took a quick spin to lunch one day just wearing a t-shirt like a moron, got one right in the chest, for the next three days I had a bigger tit than my girlfriend. Not gonna lie, it was fun to play with too.

I'm here for a good time, not a long time

I hit a really big beetle going about 65 last year. It hit my bicep. I was wearing mesh. Ended up having a huge welt and bug guts on my arm. It hurt for 2 or 3 days.

Late last season I had something sting me in between some fingers through my leather gloves. That really hurt, but only for a few hours.

My brother-in-law was riding with me the same day. He was just wearing jeans and got stung in the crotch. OUCH!

I figure there are enough of their buddies plastered on the front of my bike and gear that I deserve a sting or two every once in a while.

Press Any Key To Continue.

That's too funny!

I haven't been stung yet this spring but it's only a matter of time!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

that looks nasty...i hate wasps or bees, or anything that hurts me because they can...

when i was 8 i left my mountain dew can open while fishing. went to take a drink and a big bee stung the roof of my mouth. i swelled up and could barely talk. needless to say - a big fu goes to bees n wasps. I mean, dont they have like 16 eyes and can change direction in a blink? I'm moving in a straight line, YOU get the f outta the way stinging bastard ...sheesh - not like they cant see you with 16 eyes too...

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.
