O.K. .. It's Friday afternoon , the work week's almost over and I'm just wondering. (This might get me in trouble :oops: ) As I was riding my X back from lunch , I saw in the distance three white (juicy) butterflies in my path. Now last evening I spent an extra amount of time cleaning my new 2005 RED X to a spotless shine. Question ... Is there anybody else out there that would try to swerve to miss this fluttering bunch or am I a little ...... weird ? :roll:

After spending hours of cleaning, I avoid anything that is flying, if I can. :) The bugs here in Middleburg, Florida are as big as cats :shock:
Ever seen a Palmetto Bug? Looks like a flying roach, the size of a silver dollar. :shock:

Norm,
We call people from Midleburg Yankees :D
Try riding out by the glades, or lake Okeechobee
Now you understand why the Hondaline shield.
I dare you to find a single square inch of my shield without
bug guts after a weekend of riding.

Here in eastern NC the mosquitos will drill holes in your windshield just to get to you. But I'm with you on the flutterbys.
Does anybody have bulls-eye bug runs in their area? Here we each put a small bullseye anywhere we want on the bike, put some money in a pot, then go for a ride. Closest bug to the bullseye wins half the pot, the rest goes to charity.

You have to differentiate between destructive moths and earth friendly butterflies all in the blink of an eye. If you smell an odor like mothballs after you hit something like you described, well.....you didn't hit a butterfly.

I think I must have got the 4th one . I opened my air cleaner yesterday and there was butterfly intact :shock: laying inside. The old V-twin would have chewed that up if it got thru the carb :shock: Got the old trusty car vac and butterfly is no more :cry: It is a good thing to check in there now and then critters :wink:
