When I picked up my TLR, the dealer said to let it warm up to 100 "ideal operating temperature".

I just came off a Katana 750, so I am not used to a Fuel Injected bike with an actual TEMP gauge :laughing

Anyway, It seems like I remember someone else telling me they waited until 120 a long time ago.

So my question is, what temperature do you want to see beforeing taking off?

I wait till 100 unless it's cold outside and then I let it get up to 150 for the bun toaster effect..., Castor is the one that waits till 120 iirc. :)

Anything in that range should be just fine.

You'd think I'd know that by now, as much as I ride with that Ugly lump of Flanel!

You'd never KNOW that he waits, I'm doing good to have my 1st glove on before he takes off :laughing

I ususally have to get it to about 140 or it will bog down on me.
