    Not harmless when you hit one at 70 mph. OUCH!

    Yes they're June bugs, a type of scarab beetle. Here in Central Oregon they come out for a couple weeks in July.

    I think that's a new CIA drone with a transmitting antenna. Or a flying scorpion.

    Hopefully it's not a mutant black fly.

    Nice! In BC we have ones kind of like that called June Bugs. The ones we have are the colours of water mellon rind though!

    That's awesome. I love water mellon and I'm all for water mellon colored bugs:). you got a pic?

    These are about 3 times the size of the "june bugs" we get down here in Cali.

    Courtesy of Triumph this little guy receive a free (but compulsory) 20mile relocation package. Not sure if he appreciated it, although at least he can tell his grandkids how he hit 70mph.

    BTW there is not much of the bike in shot (other than the screen) as his body was only about the size of my thumbnail.
