Warming up a carbed bike

Is there any way to get around waiting eons for the damn thing to warm up? What happens if you just get up and go?

you may stall because your rpm's aren't up to running level?

Do a head to toe pre-trip inspection, time seems to fly by when there is a checklist.

That's exactly what a lot of riders do, get up and go but take it really easy the first few minutes. Personally I always let my bikes properly warm up. In the mean time you can check your lights, tires etc and arrange your gear, it only takes a couple minutes.

If you MUST go before it warms up, just leave the choke on. But no WOT and as soon as it reaches a nice toasty temp take off the choke...

In fact I should not even be telling anyone since if you dont know what you are doing you could stall or cause the bike to flood if you do not know exactly what your doing...

So this is just a suggestion!!!!!

Just get ready 5 minutes earlier and let it warm up properly!!
