I got a fly in my ear and was almost distracted enough to crash...

Last night I would have considered trading a very loud baby for a really nice bike.

Come to the north east, its been cold and wet all summer, no chance of swallowing flies up here they have all migrated for the summer. Wink

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

I've heard that a significant number of flying insects are water breeders so wet summer - more puddles mean more bugs in the air and thus in your mouth.

Another observation: Bumble bees really hurt when your doing 40mph!
