Just out of the Army back in '72 I was riding my RD350 at a brisk pace on a mountain road in Oaxaca, my trusty field jacket with sleeves open to catch the breeze so that I was ballooned out like the Michelin Man. Hey, look at me, air conditioned!
Of course, I soon ran through a nice-sized swarm of bees and got an unknown -- but no doubt impressive -- number up my sleeves and into the jacket. And naturally they congregated at the back and began stinging me through my t-shirt to display their displeasure at being separated from their swarmly comrades.
It's surprising how long it takes to get stopped from 70 mph when your back is on fire.
