  • Farrrking Wasps.. Keep ur visor down :(

    Went for a ride to york early Sunday to scrub my tyres in.
    1/2 way there I had a wasp fly into my helmet and lodge between my temple and helmet. After nearly going off the road as it was mid corner and 4 wasp stings later.....

    Ended up swelling up like a baloon, had to see a Doc and get Antibiotics & Anithistameans... So yeah u won't see me riding with visor up too much esp on country trips.

    Careful ppls
    Will you insure me?!

        Jees... at least with a Bee you only cop a hit once and you are left with a certain level of rhestecpa for the little critter's commitment cos you know he is guna die from it.

        But those wasps….. 3 times! Nasty. Never been stung by a wasp (touch wood) but I don’t imagine its nice.

        So on the eight day, after wasting time faffing about with unimportant guff like heaven & earth & the waters & sky & creatures [& having a wee kip] & man.... God created PSB (GenesiSX-R1000)

          Same, I'm allergic to bee stings, not sure I assume wasps have a similar sort of poison.

          Damn, lucky Frag!

              Went through a swam of bees on a country run a few weeks ago with me visor up! Fortunately ducked behind the fairing in time and kept them out of my face it was like being sprayed with pollen pellets. I was waiting for the pain to come from somewhere for a few minutes after but was lucky.

                    Maybe we could invent a bug-screen (like strong fly-screen) for the conventional motorcyclist? Like have it on the outside of your clear visor to flip down in summer when you still want air flow and non fog-vision but dont want bugs or rocks slapping you in your face?
