in-sek'-tiles-noun--any of numerous small invertebrate animals that normally vary between mildly annoying and scream inducing in their mundane insect state. Any of these creatures have the ability to morph into projectiles especially around those who regularly ride in the 70 mph range on a motorcycle. An insectile the size of, say, a bumble bee that hits an unsuspecting rider in the cheek at 70 mph has the equivalent force of being shot in the face with 22 caliber rifle. Eye protection must be worn at all times where insects are known to exist (i.e. Earth) because the potential for losing an eye because of an insectile is much greater than the Daisy BB gun your mother always warned you about.
