May can be very warm and March can be unpredictable, just make sure you have plenty of fluids for your riding, even when it is cool, you can still go through alot of fluids.
I hope you have a great time

We go to Moab every Memorial Day wknd. It can get VERY hot. This year we plan to go earlier in May or April. March would be nice I think. Load up those trailers with a bunch of fire wood and head up Sand Flats Rd. toward Slickrock campground or above. Lots of sites with room for your rigs to turn around. Also look at Potash Rd and DEad Horse Canyon.
The big jeep rally is nuts. Those guys will likely be camping and pulling some large rigs. If you go there over Easter, get there early to secure a spot because it will get crowded.
Personally I wouldn't want to ride my scoot there with all those Jeeps on the roads/trails. Imagine coming head on to a quad with gunracks on a narrow trail... Now imagine the same thing but with 15 jeeps in a row, and unless you want to be "that guy" and roost all on them, you will be waiting to pass quite often.
Either way you'll have fun.
BTW, it seems COLD there in Colo. I'm in 74 degree Daytona Beach, FL and getting ready for some salt water flyfishing
