Today began as any other day. Slept in got up and decided to take the raven to work. I warmed her up and slid my shoei rf-1000 out of its bag and put it on. I began to pull out of the driveway and a ****ing spider popped out of nowhere and was just inches from my nose inside the helmet on the visor lip for lack a better word. The visor was closed and the spider was trying to find somewhere to hide. I damn near dropped my bike trying to extract the little determined ****er. I opened the visor and he just tried to get back into the helmet into my hair. By this time I'm sure my neighbors were wondering what the hell I was dancing around for smacking at my head. I had gloves on and in panic mode could get my helmet strap off. I took off a glove and managed to get the helmet off. I smacked it on the top and the spider fell out. Not the end of story. He fell out but managed to hook a line back to the helmet which I shook vigourously while he tried to climb back up. Finally his line broke and I checked to make sure there were no more little bastards inside my brain bucket. I don't kill spiders because I believe they help with all the damn mosquitos around my pad. But as I was about to drive off I looked down and the damn spider was crawling up my shoe and almost up the pant leg. So I executed that ****er with one smack of a gloved hand which is what I should have done originally. Anyway check your helmets. I don't know what kind of spider it was ( brown w white markings), but it could have easily been a black widow or brown recluse which would ruin anyone's day. I'm just glad the ****er came out in the driveway and not on the highway and did not bite my face:lmao!

crazy little bastards.. i'm the same way about spiders.. they keep the mosquitos away and other random insects.. just when they get in the way is when they're a pain..

i had one of the hunter ones crawling on my chest one night while sleeping.. woke up tossed the thing off me.. grabbed a little empty nut can, caught it and went back to sleep.. in the morning let it go outside.. did i mention this thing was about 3" wide(including legs).. not something i really wanted to wake up to lol

I had my helmet in my room on a director chair in the bag! And had just worn it the night before. So I did not even think overnight that some little shitler would make it his pad for the night. :scared

that would probably scare the crap out of me. I've had a gecko in the helmet before and that was a bit odd.

I just happened to catch a black widow crawling into my alpine star boots. I keep them in the garage but now I stuff them. I also walked full on into a huge web one night w/ spider dead in the middle. I just wasn't looking but I ran into the middle of the yard frantically snatching off my shirt & clawing at my head. Embarrasing to say the least.

Spiders dont scare me at all.....not that I like them but just not afraid of them....however I have been traped inside my helmet with a wasp, running about 45ish with traffic and I almost abandoned my bike. I was lucky enough to get the visor open and the wasp flew out before I crashed.....So I do know how you feel...
