I'm glad thats all that happened. Thankfully you didn't end up with a suit full of them stinging there way around at that speed!

I agree with penfold. I can't imagine getting a live pissed off bee stuck inside my bucket.

Nice pics, glad you are okay.

Lucky they didn't get up under your lid. I got stung by a few wasps when I was taking an exit with my shield up. Face was nice and fat after that.

EEEwwww nice.

I had a bumble bee get up inside my helmet somehow last year!!! I saw a big blur out of the corner of my eye, then it was walking around on the inside of the lens! I freaked big time at first, then just opened up my shield and tipped my head up and it got sucked right out thankfully.

Holy crap, good thing you kept 'er on two wheels !!

I was riding on the street a couple years ago, had my visor up and got a bee in my lid. It was crawling around my ear before it got me. People behind me must have thought I'd gone nuts. All of a sudden I start bashing the side of my helmet with my hand trying to kill the bee...

Had to stop and go for a :drink
