Same over here
In the Netherlands it is much the same - we have wet and unpleasant winters. This means that in the first nice weekend of the year, usually somewhere in april, at least four bikers die in accidents. Car drivers are not used to bikes, because they have not seen them for four months, the bikers are not used to the power they have, opposed to the cars they have been driving through winter - and there you go. It happens every year and as a fulltime biker I try not to use the bike the first good weekends. Way too dangerous with all ZXR's, GSXR's and other R's out for the first time. (yes, I am speeding most of the time as well - but I do it everyday)
If you can laugh at your own stupidities, you have fun all year round!
