    Stink Beetles

    I used to run over all the stink bugs I would pass on the trail. Then I thought why do I do that, so I stopped. Do you run them over or let em' be?

    stink bugs are cool. it's their home, so i leave 'em alone. i even yell "stink bug" when i'm riding to warn the riders behind me to watch out.

    If it happens it happens, don't go out of my way one way or the other.

    I've seen a lot of stink bugs lately and I've caught a few humping on the trails. I try to ride around them, especially if the guy is boning his misses.

    I laughed so hard at this my face hurts!

    RIde around 'em it's their country. You want the big man upstairs to run over you with a massive chariot or sumthan when you are "boning" your "missus"?

    Stinkbugs are people, too. Respect them and their home as you trek on through...

    I always ride around them. They're just walking around their home...no need to crush them.

    I swat flies, and keep track of my killscore.

    I wont go out of my way to preserve a stinkbug, but im not gonna aim for it either, just as long as it doesnt buzz past my face a million times, hover near my ears, and annoy the living daylights out of me....

    I'm a believer in Karma (what goes around, comes around) and I'll crash before I run over a bug/reptile.I hate those damn gnats that come out in the summer and I will kill/eat them every chance I get.
    I may not be as good as I once was.
    But I'm as good once, as I ever was.

    I work on my bike skills and bunny hop them. I make sure to tail whip the rear tire in case I don't get enough elevation to clear them.
