Same here in Texas. Just had a few battles with hornets, and june bugs. Those are a mother going 70+. Thank goodness for wind shields, and and full face helmets with visors.Over here in Orlando we have insects called love bugs and during this time of the year there are literally millions flying around.

Two halves of a raccoon . Hit it broadside at 70

A bullfrog . Several pounds worth dead center of the windscreen
Two dogs . Both survived .

I got tangled up in the bike's highside and cartwheeled a bit . I did get the meat though . Some of my meat might have been in the burger ...
