Good point,
this morning I drove off straight away......gently. However I view my 80 series Landcruiser differently to my MV in that the latter is very much a high performance engine and feel, up to this point anyway, should be treated differently.

-3rd tank you can start giving it a handfull more so but not all the time.
Beyond the 3rd tank your free to ride as you please. Simple but it worked with the 2 strokes of the time

I hear you! Fairly played Sir!

Borrowed a Zero at Barber Vintage Fest a couple of years ago and was doing wheelies down the lanes in the RV lot and nobody even noticed me, was hilarious. Also snuck up on a guy trying to impress a girl with his horrible guitar skills.

And what about track days? The first session starts at 09:00 but there is a lot of admin stuff to do (unload the bike, put it on paddock stands, tyre warmers, registration, put your kit on etc.)
There is not much time to start the engine while all that is going on, so what is one to do then?

Uhh, the bike can be running while you do those things. Then by the time you set off its going to be registering a temp and then once you get to the paddock its up to safe temps.

AS we are way off topic! I saw video of Electric F1 car, reminded me of a huge electric remote control car! The acceleration is off the charts! We are at the dawn of a new era, it is exiting! The new drones that are being tested, unmanned and electric, capable of extreme speeds and G forces, makes people think they are seeing UFOs!!

Surely if you needed to warm up the engine before use it would say so in the user manual ?

I just start it up and ride off. I do have some mechanical sympathy and dont redline it from cold. It warms up much more quickly under load (riding) than when at idle and most engine wear takes place when its cold. So the quicker you get it up to temp the better ....apparently

On a track day where you need to use all the revs immediately then it makes sense to have the engine warm ..and the tyres

cheers

Up to this point all participants seem to agree that the bike needs to be warmed up for a period before giving it full throttle. The debate possibly could be whether you sit for a period or begin to move immediately.

I’m tending towards moving as soon as you’re ready and gently bring the bike to temp before putting under full load.
This will be an ingrained behavioural change but there have been some good points put forward.

The agreed ‘no no’ is to rev the shit out of it from a cold start.
esq'z me and bogie like this.

the reason I let my bikes warm thoroughly is to let the oil reach its design temp so the viscosity is where its supposed to be to lubricate the engine as it was meant to
