Riding season has officially arrived and local experts are sharing tips on how to be safe on the roadways.

Following a brutal winter, the roads throughout the county and surrounding areas have taken a beating.

Franklin Township Road Master and motorcycle activist Steve Weston urges drivers to brush up on their skills before hitting the open road.

Weston says caution is key, especially when it comes to riding along roadways that are ravaged by potholes and pebbles like Silverthorn Road in Franklin Township.

In addition, experts are urging bikers to fine tune their motorcycles before they hit the road...

Check the tire pressure, engines and gas gauge especially if this is the first time you are bringing your bike out since winter.
