Had the same experience today. Did a 2 hr ride today after work and was quite surprised at the amount of splats that I had on my shield when I got home. Ahhhhh gotta love it though.......

I thought I might have a headlight out whil I was riding home tonight.

Then I did something I rarely do, I looked at the front of my bike.

The headlights were covered with bugs.

Ah, 'tis spring, the bugs are on the wing...............

No bug splats so far, just a smart bomb from a pigeon.......

Had bugsplats after the Ontario ride this weekend. Of course the impromptu bike bath helped...
