    It's getting close

    That time of year is getting close here in about 1-2 months where we'll get a break from the weather. @donkey @Ride Red ; and myself may plan rides.
    What i'm saying is to slow down , check the roads. pot holes, brine and sand are gonna be out. Some of the Spring rains will take care of that and I know some of you won't even take a chance on your baby's getting dirty, wet or slipping in some sand etc. Some may not make it out til about June. So just a thought I had to today as I saw a couple pot holes, it's a good time to think when you see a crater try some counter steering.... push on the right or left handle bar depending on what is safer at the time and avoid a dented rim, chipped tooth or worse.

    i remember doing a 75 degree late February ride down near Springfield a few years ago. i was "chasing" Sherry and there was still so much salt on the road she was trowing a white rooster tail off the rear tire.....

    Just take it easy until it warms up and the rain come and clean the roads off. Then watch out for all the crap the rains wash into the road.

    Also cagers tend to forget what a motorcycle is over the winter.

    Spring arrives and not only are the roads still a bit messy, but the riders can also be a bit rusty. Good to take it easy for a few rides until the road debris as well as the rider cobwebs clear.
