This **** can happen. We pulled out of the tree farm a couple years back and drove 28 miles to the next town. It was a good thing as we couldn't see out the windshield anymore because of the bugs. That time of day, that time of year, whatever, it was their time.

I understand. I washed my jacket with a sponge when I came home the other day.

bugs suck for bikers. i guess they are good for holding up the earth's eco system.

When I picked up my superhawk in july, I was riding back home and we had to go over a lake. As soon as we got near the lake there were tons of bugs. I had to stop at a gas station to clean up. The effect was the exact same as the picture.

I don't think you will ever get them all out... lol

"Kators" this was by a lake too, "Klamath Lake" in Oregon there were so many they would come together in these bug tornado's you could actually see.

Those just look like gnats. Try running into a swarm of bees at 70+ mph.

I got one inside the collar of my jacket last Wednesday. It finally stopped itching yesterday.

Nice photo though. Its a bitch when you inhale one of those.
