Two wheel traveling along the Texas during the warm weather riding season can be quite pleasant. For some travelers it could prove to be a little aggravating too.
After a recent trip somewhere between Seguin and Gonzales TX along US 90 some poor little bugs met their fate by colliding with our windshield. I guess one could say that we won the battle out on the road.
After our ride, I was placed in charge of cleaning the bike. I noticed something about the dried bug batter firmly adhered to the windshield. I moved in for a closer look. There was some green bits and pieces along with some yellows and a few reds in the mix. Gross looking but interesting in a way.
“Hey Skeeter” I said, “look here, there is no carcass mixed in with the bug splatter.”
“Yeap”, Skeeter replied while sucking down a ice cold beer.
“How fast were we going anyway” I asked?
“’bout 80 I suppose” Skeeter said.
“Hmmm, I wonder what goes through a bugs mind as he hits your windshield like that?”
Skeeter leaned over and looked closer at the bits of encrusted bug batter on the glass and took another drag off his beer as he replied, “Looks to me like its his asshole.”
“Yeah, I think so”.
