What, no one's started a spring pix thread yet? Might it be because a big part of the US is still under piles of snow?

Well, post 'em as you feel fit.

My 1983 Lotus Classique with a side of daffodils.

First pic just over a week ago, so technically not Spring - but close.
2nd pic earlier this week.
I prefer warmer weather, when the winds are calm.

No daffodils yet, but no ice either. First real ride of the year: 35k, shaking down the Mann-Libertas. Not a single adjustment needed; I'm getting better at this. About time, too.
