Anybody ever been hit by a bug while riding and where? One day I was hit in the right temple by a yellow jacket, talk about getting my attention really quick. Needless to say, my right eye and the area around it got so swollen that I couldn't see for a few days. When I felt him hit me, I pulled over to the side of the road and took off my helmet so I could get my revenge on the bee before it stung me some more. I succeeded but the damage had already been done. Another time, I deceided to stop and get a drink. When I got off my bike, there was a dead yellow jacket right where my boys had been, thank goodness he didn't sting me there.
