does catching bugs in the helmet and knees count

I caught a cigarette off the visor... i usually ride with it up and sunglasses on unless I am riding on highways... then I keep it down due to wind...

I flick my cigarettes out the window too when i am caging but I look before I just let them fly........

oh yea... did I mention that when the asshat flicked the cigarette in my face i proceeded to pull in front of him and toss a handfull of change in the air in front of him... sounded cool when they all hit his hood and windshield... oh yea then i gunned it the hell out of there.... because a 3,000 lb car can do some real damage to a sportbike.. if it can catch you...

i caught a brown bat once... it hit me in the visor then fell into my lap..

i was doing about 20mph, cruising around Ft. Dix one night with my girl, when out of nowhere i saw a flash and i get hit in the head.
it was very late, no traffic there so i stopped to see what had happened..

*who the flying f**k threw that!?* probably slipped out..

i felt something against my leg so i looked down and saw a furry ball.. i moved my leg to let it fall, then pushed the bike back to get it into the light.
i got off the bike, took off the helmet and squatted down beside it and bumped it with my helmet..

POOF! the thing flips over, flops its wings a couple of times then flies off.. i mustve jumped 4ft up and 4ft back.. the girl i was with said it looked like something had knocked me back.

i was already on edge.. loaded, safety off, with a finger on a hair trigger.. it was almost a moment you leap out of your shoes over..

i laid there laughing for a long time..

hubby, JLBUsa caught some egg crate packaging on the front of the busa in ATL...a huge bundle had fallen off a truck in downtown ATL and it was everywhere, he yanked it off his bike and threw it away, directly onto my helmet!!

I like to catch flies with chop sticks as I ride...

I haven't ever caught anything. Don't even remember trying. I did try and move one of those lousy retread tire chunks with my foot one time. Ouch Had several close calls with turkey buzzards, took 2 birds (one in the chest)..

4 weeks ago I was on a ride with some friends. While going through a corner I decided to drag my fingers when I saw a baseball sized rock getting closer. I thought about it for a split second then decided to keep my fingers & just pointed at it for the fellas behind me.

That would freak me the hell out. Turkey vultures are big, man.
I ran over a dead squirrel last night, does that count?
