Hey OP here, thanks for all the support guys. Luckily I didn't get into an accident. I was able to come out of the whole incident without a scratch but a massive itchy red welt. The doctor said I'll be fine in a few days time. :)

Spiders are all venomous to some extent (or as OP says... Poisonous) so labeling them as such is rather redundant. Some of the less venomous spiders have a more "stinging" kind of bite that hurts right away. It hurts more but it does hardly any damage. Some of the more dangerous spiders will bite you and you will never know it even happened until 24 hours later when your skin starts turning black and caving in. It all depends on the venom and what it is designed to do. Some venoms are geared toward inflicting pain or nerve damage, some are necrotic (flesh rotting), some go after your blood and there are more still, and many are combo packs. I took a bite from a Woodlouse hunter and it stung like hell for an hour but that was the extent of the damage. I'll take that over a silent but deadly venom any day.
Obvious solution. Soak your helmet in raid before you ride, every time.
