Springtime can be the best time of year to ride...but also the most dangerous. It's a bit like the Tale of Two Cities - the best of time and the worst of times. Pro: spring smells and warm temps after a long winter. Con: post-winter salt & grime on the roads.
After a rough winter especially, cage drivers have forgotten to even try to look for motorcyclists. We need to be extra careful in the early spring season, and never assume anything about being seen.
