I was riding along about 40 when just out of the corner of my vision I saw this big azz black bee coming right at me. It wedged right up under the edge of my helmet and commenced to stinging the pizz out of my neck. So here I was clawing at my neck, grabbing brakes and mirror checking all at the same time and managed to get stopped off the road and in neutral. I started to loosen the helmet strap and then the bastid crawled behind my ear and started round two! Let me tell ya, it is possible to get your helmet off with the strap still connected. Once I ripped it loose, the biggest, nastiest, meanest looking hornet I've seen in a long time just flew away. Luckily I'm not the allergic reaction type, but I do have a sore jaw.
