Warming up in the morning

Hi guys,

How to warm up the bike in the morning?
My previous bike is a ST1300. I start the bike and wait
about 30 seconds and slowly drive off.
It take about 1km to totally warm up the bike.
May I know how do you do with your roadster?

Thank you.

I think you will find that most of us would not do any different, no matter what the vehicle. I just ride off and dont flog it for a few minutes, might leave it to idle while I put my helmet on etc.

I do like the above, leave it idle with a little choke whilst I put my helmet on. Then when I get under way it won't stumble and quit on me at the wrong time. Maybe idle a bit longer in cold weather, but I doubt you have that problem in Singapore

We fire ours up and let it idle for one minute. Then, off we go.

We trudge on.

I start it, put my stuff in the panniers, on with the helmet and gloves and go (this takes about 2-3 minutes) I ride at not over 3,000rpm gear changes for about another 6 or 7 minutes, then away I go (I still haven't taken it past 5,000rpm in 23,000 klms and don't feel I need to). 3,200 to 3,500rpm gear changes brings out the sound of its nice tripple note

Cheers

Getting too old for high revs (am closer to 100 than 0), did that with jappers years ago and am running out of demerit points as well
