Spry and Springly

You just cannot adequately describe the first rides of spring using any language. You have to experience winter and inability to ride. Then you need a day where the birds are suddenly chirping, flowers are blooming, and the temperature climbs to the point where you don't need the heavy winter jacket. Then you need a bike that can comfortably take you on a journey to enjoy such a day when it involves both on and offroad stints. This combination allows you to rediscover motorcycling as if anew every year. This will sound strange, but those people fortunate enough to have climates which allow them to ride all year round, are actually missing something here.....
