Anyone else have awful allergies this time of year and have to sneeze thirty times and have to pull over to avoid crashing? :(

Ummm :eek: I pulled over I swear
And your coffee is where? :)

The worst time is when you have a full-face helmet on and you can't get the visor up.

Luckily I don't suffer from hay fever or similar but I sympathise with anyone who does, as I know how uncomfortable and debilitating it can be.

I really need to get a prescription for anti allergy. Every tree is staring at me and laughing.

Maybe I should get a hepafilter mask to avoid the allergens.

Pulled over to read this.. Now to see if I can find somewhere local that carries it. Do you think it makes your nose glow like that girl in the picture?

Anything right now would help even if I do look like Rudolph when I use it.

You only use it in the privacy of your home for 4 minutes / 3 times a day, just make sure no-one has a phone / camera in their hands when you are sticking it up your nose . . .

You guys are too much.

Joe I found your picture online:


I've never used that before but I swear by steroids for my nose. I don't get muscles because of it, of course. :)

I've had to pull over before because of colds/sick and given that you're in NY I can only imagine how annoying it can be to only have, what, a month of great weather and it's all allergy season? Poor Joe.

One more thought for you Joe, and don't look down to read this while you're out today. You can always get a mask, half or full sized, that will minimize the amount of unfiltered air you breathe in. Probably a good idea depending on the speed, although on a Grom you probably aren't pulling the clicks you do on your 600RR.

Zan Headgear Neoprene Half Face Skull Mask - BikeBandit.com
Zan Headgear Coolmax® Balaclava Extreme Face Mask - BikeBandit.com

That's a good example of a full or half sized mask, albeit a little more evil than I might buy. I'd scare the children.

I have seasonal allergies as well and usually Flonase is enough to cover it for me. But there are days where it's just best to stay indoors or in an air conditioned car. Just not worth the risk to have a sneeze attack at the wrong time while on a bike.

Yeah, my doctor is pretty cool and knows about my allergies so I can just call up the office and ask for a Rx and it gets sent over to the pharmacy within the day normally.

So glad I don't have any allergies. But it really does suck when you have to hold in a sneeze so you don't ruin your whole lid inside on the visor lol.
