Star date: 03.17.2011
The weather gods are smiling on St. Louis today as a virtual aligning of the planets is taking shape. Behold, on the the same date we will witness 77 degrees of warm and sunshine, the beginning of the NCAA basketball tournament, and St. Patrick's Day. Keep in mind that much of St. Louis is already on spring break. My prediction is there will be lots of people missing from work today, extra long lunches and smoke breaks taken, and plenty of people milling around in downtown St. Louis, bars, restaurants and hotel lobbies around this great city of ours. As for my fellow motorcycle brethren, there will be plenty of bikers on the roads and highways today feeling the fresh air in their faces again as we usher in the beginning of the riding season! Enjoy the day people...enjoy the day!

Now that we're into March, the official countdown has begun to spring. By my calendar it looks like only 18 more days. Of course, mother nature could cooperate and give us some warmer days before then, so motorcycle riders, commuters, and weekend warriors will check the weather every day for the temperatures and conditions that look right for them to hit the open road and feel the fresh air in their face. Bikers throughout most of the country have suffered through a harsh winter and with warmer weather coming, the urge to get out and ride becomes greater and greater! If they haven't done so already, it's time to charge the batteries, check the oil, and fill up the gas tank. The highways and byways beckon our call for the rush and freedom that can only be experienced on a motorcycle! So if you are driving in your car or pickup, be sure to watch out for motorcycles and give us a little room. The roads are there for everyone to share and share alike. Let the new riding season begin!
