Sucking Flies!!!

I keep getting bloomin flies sucked into me lid as I'm riding along...quite un-nerving whilst riding, wrestling to open me visor at speed.....though I suppose on the bright snack whilst riding....hmmmmmm

I've got a Shoei xr-1000 lid, but I changed me lid around the same time I changed me is it different fairings or the lid???

Not flies !

or is it --- OPEN SEASON on flies ? :blink:

But a bumble bee in Portugal did manage to lodge under my tackle while riding through a forested area, at about 50 mph, it wasn't a pretty site ! wobbling around trying to stop with my right leg held up in the air cos I could feel it buzzing under my nuts ! I just managed to stop when it flew out & it was only then I saw how big the bugger was I swear it was as big as a sparrow ! :shock:

Flies in, around & on the helmet (oo-er, missus!) is just a fact of biking life...

If it 'bugs' you that much, might i suggest getting an headover for your neck to nose?

nice thin lightweight one for summer, thick-ish warm one for autumn/winter.

they also help prevent misting (all year round).


No apologies for the pun!
