Like a women, you shouldn't ride your bike hard until warm and well lubricated.

I follow the 'Let it idle while you check the lights and tyres, put on your helmet and gloves, check your pockets and close the garage door' warm up routine. After that it's easy on the throttle until the tyres are warm and you're sure of the level of grip

With women the difference between rape and seduction has always been salesmanship.
