    bee sting?

    Went for a ride on my Vulcan today and noticed a bit of a sting just up my left sleeve. Not much I could do about it so just kept going on down the road. When I got to where I was going I had forgot about it. Now, after about 4hrs sitting here it came back while typing. Don't think it was a bee at all. More like a spider in my sleeve when I put the jacket on. Was a bit of a pustule I popped and an itching in a larger area. Will know more in the morning. Would rather have a bee sting than a spider bite. They can get nasty.

    So here is the moral of this story. Don't just hang you jacket on the sissybar in the garage. Creepy crawlies can and will find you.

    Take an Antihistamine like Benadryl and clean the bite area. If you do not have Benadryl take an allergy pill and monitor the bite area for a red ring or infection.

    Thanks for asking Mudbug, Fred. Is fine, no swelling or redness. Must have just been a yellowjacket went up my sleeve while on the road. Only can tell it happened by the small area where the stinger went in. Luckily with most hornets they don't leave it when they sting like honey bees do. Only bad thing about that is they can continue to use it on you.
