Warmer temperatures bring out the motorcyclists

Bismarck, ND (WDAY TV) -- Record high temperatures had motorcyclists trading gas guzzlers, for more simple routes.

Bismarck, ND (WDAY TV) -- Record high temperatures had motorcyclists trading gas guzzlers, for more simple routes.

Riders call this weekend a perfect time to bring out the bike for the first time this year. It's a sight we haven't seen in some time.

One longtime rider says he'll use the cycle as long as it's 40 degrees and not raining. That's because it saves him 50 dollars to fill up on gas, instead of using his truck.

Keith Gendron of Bismarck says, "Kind of watch fuel prices, and yeah they're a little high, that's why the weather gets nice enough, get out on the bike instead of the vehicles, just to save on the gas."

Triple A puts the average price of unleaded in North Dakota at 3 dollars, 66 cents per gallon.
