You’ve waited for it a long time. You held out hope it would arrive. No,
we’re not talking about rich aunt Rene’s untimely death, we’re talking
about spring. And, as of yesterday, it’s here.
This winter was long and cold for many, but the snow is melting quickly, street crews are filling potholes*, and the temperature is rising.
So, there are no more excuses. Go finish that bike maintenance you’ve been putting off all winter; change your oil, clean your carb, charge your battery, air up your tires, and finish installing those aftermarket bits you bought back in January. Throw on a couple extra layers for warmth, then fire up that bike for a ride.
Watch out for unwary cagers and traction sand left on the streets, but be sure to enjoy your first ride of the year – after making it through Winter 2011, you’ve earned it.
