    I'd fully expect my mom to slap me if I watched that dog get attacked by bees and did nothing...

    Side note, definitely hit a bee on SR-100 a few weeks ago and it was almost as bad as a rock in the throat. Stupid little thing has that hard shell and was in the wrong place at the wrong time!

    I know the feeling. When I was a young boy I was on my Bridgestone 90 and hit a bumblebee (or he flew into me), while going really fast (probably 25mph), and it hurt like hell. No biting or stinging though. :clap It was in the upper chest.

    Back in the old days when you could ride in the bed of a truck standing up behind the cab, I took a bee stinger to the chest. Pretty painful to a 12 y/o.

    Down the back of a jacket- stinging, on a road without a pull off for seemingly miles. Inside the helmet same type of road.

    Inhaled one up the nose while in the air on a triple jump. Hit the back side of the triple. Fortunately the endo dislodged the little bastard which flew out and landed on the ground, stunned. I took off my helmet and smashed it to pulp. Unfortunately that made the micro SD card fall out of my go pro into the mud and it could not be found, so the video was destroyed.

    Had $100 bucks on the line in my duel with Eli, and of course the incident cost me the race. I hate it when that happens!

    Well since there's no video evidence, I demand a re-enactment. Beezy can be Eli. I'll even give you a cut of the gate, cuz I know peeps would pay to see it. :D

    ps, You don't even have to crash, I just want to watch you attempt a triple. :lurk

    Sorry. That incident left me with PTSD. If I even see a jump anymore I freak out. Tried to work through it at Gatorback, but just couldn't overcome my illness.

    All this talk about black widow spiders got me thinking. I was sitting down on the shitter and remembered I needed to look down and check for spiders. I was already sitting down when I thought of it. All I saw was a brontosaurus! :deal

    It's not the speed, it's the sudden stop.
