We're all subject to it.  The weather gets nice here in the Midwest and we celebrate by driving with our windows open, or tops down.  We seek the confirmation that we've survived the winter, and celebrate accordingly!

That's the good news.  But with every party, a price.  Sometimes we car drivers forget our motorcycle brethren are out there as well.  In our hurry to saturate the senses with springtime, we forget the common sense factor.  Now is the time to be keenly aware of the smaller, faster, and harder-to-see vehicles that will no be sharing the roads with us.  It would a good idea to use a little more caution, take and extra look, and leave a little for following distance for our 2-wheeled friends.

Most riders I know spend a great deal of their road time looking out for you, so please extend them the same courtesy.  It helps keep the road clean.
