I don't know if i should laugh, or try to console you, but in the current time *Throws cans of tomato juice at you from up wind*

How did the bike take it? Do hope it's not too messy for you to clean up, that is a rather awful thing.

use duech to get rid of the smell. when the dog gets sprayed by a skunk, the dog gets a nice duech bath. believe it or not, it really works.

Also a good fix is to mix Baking soda and Hydrogen peroxide, and Dish soap, Wash with it. I have used it on my Dogs before and it really workes and wont turn your hair and cloths red

I almost want to laugh but I guess it's really not funny. Last week I had a Skunk run on to the road but he did a 180 and went back in the ditch. Good thing for me.

Ok, I can see your boots getting skunked.. but your helmet?? Where was your head?
And yes, avoid tomato juice, it doesn't work as well as they claim and if you don't get it all rinsed off.. it turns rancid and just about smells worse then the skunk!

Lucky you and the bike are ok aside from being smelly.I feel for ya that is really bad.My redbone gets skunked 1 or 2 times a year and I use what Ccspinner said and it works like a charm.Never tried douch although I might next time.That will be fun to buy at the drug store. Goodluck unstinking yourself.
