Two cicadas flying side by side both crashed into the windshield of a car going 55. Guess what one cicada said to the other cicada?

Bet we don't have enough guts to do that again.

I have many cicada guts on my truck windshield.
Made me think how much it would hurt hitting a cicada while on a motorcycle.

Has that happened to anyone?
I hit a June bug once and it felt like I hit a rock.

Rode through a swarm of bees, yes got stung. Grasshoppers really mess up your shades. Hit a red tail hawk between Albuquerque and Socorro, NM. Almost crashed Jo and I.

Got hit by a bumble bee two times in the same trip. One stuck to my shirt. The other lost its mind and guts.
YES, it hurt pretty bad at 50 mph.

Back in 1987- I hit a few that summer. Had a full face shield, and I kept it down during the invasion! In 2004 and this year we barely saw any where we live now, and we're just 44 miles south from where we were. Mark.

in 1976 i was in college in florida. i was coming down the 7 mile bridge ( the old one). at marathon and had a bumble bee fly in my helmet and started stinging me in the side of my face. i laid the bike down at the bottom of the bridge and tore my helmet off. it was a mess. whole side of my face all swollen, left eye swollen shut. not the best condition to ride back up to jensen beach.

I was riding a 1964 BSA in northern Calif. in '64 on a return trip from Mexico when I lucked into a swarm of grasshoppers crossing the highway, I was at about 80+ mph. Boy Howdy !, road was slick, engine fins filled with bodies and overheated and I ended up with minor road rash on the side of the hwy. Hwy Patrol stopped by and took care of the situation - tow truck to nearest town (Oroville), where my cousin and her highway patrol (motorcycle - CHIPS) husband lived. Strange experience. True story.

Didn't see it happen, but a biker buddy told a story of catching a grass hopper in the inside crook of his elbow.

It penetrated the skin, required roadside pocket knife surgery to get the remains out!

I don't ride but met a guy once who said he swallowed a stink bug. Said he could taste it for a few days. EEWWW

I collided with a seagull with a Sikorski 30 passenger S61L helicopter while on final approach into Newark Airport. Put a big dent in the nose of the helicopter. One of our crews hit a seagull at night with a Boeing 25 passenger BV107 helicopter that came through the center windscreen, went between the pilots, through the cockpit door and landed in the lap of a passenger. What a mess. Broken plexiglass, feathers, guts and their contents. (;>))

I got a bumble bee center chest with no shirt on,it about knocked me off of the bike. I am sure it is online somewhere,a lady was being Life Flighted to St Louis MO for a heart transplant. A Mallard duck went half way through the windscreen of the helicopter. THere was a picture in the county paper where the duck was mounted half in and haf out of the cut out wind screen.
