Was pumping fuel in Corona today and had six land on the bike while I was fueling up on the way up to Riverside from San Juan. Glad to hear you are doing fine.

A Bee's story

At least they wasn't the Africanized Bee's.. :D[/QUOTE]

If they were the Africanized ones you would probably be typing from the ICU.
I know, tony_fury got a new cologne, being the gentlemen he is, he wanted to smell good thus put on three times his usual amount.
Hence he is lucky it was only one bee and not the bloody hive.
The poor bee thought it just struck the mother load of pollen when it came upon the fragrance trail. Little did he know, his brief life was about to flash before his antennae... :D:D

Funny story

I am cruising along the 10 freeway on my way to Century City. When all of a sudden I feel like someone just punched me in the chest. I look down my shirt and see the biggest Bumble Bee ever, I mean this thing was the size of a ping-pong ball and was not a happy bee! I pull onto the shoulder and begin to frantically take off my helmet, jacket and t-shirt. Hoping I am not going to get stung. So now I am standing on the side of the road without a shirt and am examining each peace of clothing as if it were to hold the answers to everything. Ok, no bee in the helmet. Unknown to me a CHP officer saw me pull over quickly and start to disrobe. It was about the time I was rolling up my shirt to squish the bee, if it were still in it, that I notice the officer in his car with a look of pure amusement on his face. He says over the loud speaker.. "Are you ok? Not on fire or something?" " NO" I yell back. "I am fine, just trying to avoid the large bee that got into my shirt." So after I have to show my ID, insurance card etc. I am still standing on the side of the road with a rolled up t-shirt in my hand... Didn't find the bee.... well not until the very end. I am about to get back on bike and continue on my way. When I here buzzzzzz zzzzz and right in the middle of the speedo is the bee. I slowly backed away till Mr. Bee decided he rather chase the other guy on the Fury who smelled better.

That's too funny!
I got nailed in the throat on my VTX last year, It does suck.
But I was once riding with my wife, and we pulled into a Walgreens for something or other, and hopped back on the bike. As we were riding thru the parking lot, All hell broke loose behind me! The bike lurched one way, then the other, at about 15 miles an hour! All I could do is to try to avoid the traffic and the obsticles in your typical Walgreens parking lot.
All the while I was exposed to broken english, and mostly spanish from my wife, who had decided to dismount because she thought a bee (abeja) was in her hair. If we were on the road at speed I shudder to think what would have happened.
keep that in mind when you carry a passenger.

Second weekend I had my Fury I got stung twice in the same day. On my left temple and on my left jaw. I hadn't been stung by a bee since I was 6 or 7 and I stepped on one at a pool. :(

So I got stung my a Colorado Honey Bee the FIRST day I ever rode my Fury. I am violently allergic and have been hospitalized the other two times I was stung, but guess I'm not allergic to Colorado honey bees because I was fine (the other two stings were wasp). Maybe the FURY attracts them! LOL!
