ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - "Start Seeing Motorcycles."

Illinois governor Bruce Rauner is urging drivers to keep an eye out for the two-wheelers as the weather warms.

“Be aware, be careful, be cautious, especially when changing lanes and especially when turning,” he says.

This is "Motorcycle Awareness Month" in Illinois.

Rauner says a good friend was injured last week and remains hospitalized after the driver of a pickup didn't see his bike and they crashed.
