Temperatures this weekend are expected to hit in the 70's. I knew good weather was here because of one of my co-workers. He's an avid motorcycle rider. He came in today with his head shaved -- hair, beard, everything. He does that so he doesn't get what I refer to as a "biker's tan" where areas covered with facial hair are lighter and are really noticeable.
The long and the short of it is this: there will be a HUGE increase in motorcycles on the road this weekend as everyone celebrates the end of winter and the return to Ridin' Free. So, for those of us in cages (biker lingo for cars or other four-wheel vehicles), please keep an eye out and be careful. Remember, motorcycles don't have the protection cars afford us or the accident avoidance abilities. Give motorcycles some extra distance for reaction time, keep an eye out for the smaller things when changing lanes and such, and be neighborly on the roads.
Thank you, and God bless.
