Man goes on a scooter ride to Kellog, MN about 30 miles. About the time he pulls into Kellogg for gas something flies down his T shirt and stings him in gut. Man hopes he squishes whatever just stung him in gut by slapping his gut. While all this is happening he's trying to find a spot to pull over thats not a gravel shoulder. Mean while he thinks, oh crap what if it slides down my shirt and onto my nuts and stings the boys. Pulls over on gravel doesn't wreck and hops off not finding whatever he squished. All the while thanking god he didn't get stung on nuts. Fast forward gets home finds big 3" bruise and welt on gut. Still thanking god he didn't get stung on nuts. Now sitting here with ice on gut, and boys are fine.

Oh, did I mention scooter runs fine as long as I don't try a sustained WOT run. Either to rich or running bowl dry not sure which yet.

That sounds like the sort of thing that usually only happens to me. Glad they boys are okay and I hope the gut makes a speedy recovery as well!
