**** _______ down my shirt!!!
I live in NJ and took a cruise today along CR 524 with my fiance on the back. I was probably going about 50-55mph and got whacked in the front of the neck by a bug, but I though it bounced right off (like usual). So about 2-3 mins goes by and all of a sudden I start feeling this INTENSE pain on the left side of my chest. I gave it about 30 secs to see if it would go away or get worse....and of course it got worse! At this point I still had no clue what was going on. So I pulled off the road immediately and shut the bike down. I hopped off and still felt the intense pain. My fiance had nooooo clue what was going on. I took off my shirt and there it was.....the bug that bounced off of my neck was a bee! It obviously got stunned when it hit me and fell through an opening in the collar of my shirt. When it gathered its marbles it was pissed and unleashed some fury on my chest! haha. I have not been stung since I was young and I will admit, it is PAINFUL!
luckly I am not allergic and more important I am glad I did not lose focus while riding.
As for the bee, he was not so lucky.....
thought it was a funny story and im sure its happened before!
