Concept Art Writing Prompt: Stormy Ride on the Back of a Cyborg InsectS

In a future where people can ride upon giant cyborg insects, do they race them like horses? Or are we watching an ordinary commute on an extraordinary vehicle? It's up to you to create a story inspired by this low-flying bug.

This digital painting by Abe Taraky is titled "Race," and these bugs are certainly speeding along. But tell us your interpretation of this particular image; come up with a short story about insect riders and post it in the comments.
