Wow, that's nice! Do you guys ever get those huge grasshoppers where you are? The ones that are (from my childhood memory at least) about 4" long and 1/2" thick?
I went through a field last year and felt like I was being attacked by grasshoppers from every side. Yes, they went 'ping' as they flew into my spokes.
There was one of those guys looking at my bike when I locked up a couple of days ago. He didn't scare away easily, either...
Oh yes, the big ones, another reason to wear a helmet.
