How I Start My Bike My starting technique varies depending on many different factors, chiefly location. When in my garage, the technique is much the same as you guys have posted: a little choke, a twist of the throttle and it fires right up. When I am down at the biker bar the technique is slightly different, beginning with my approach to the bike. Make sure the chicks are checking you out before you do anything. Toss back your drink, slam the shot glass down on the bar and then approach the bike with a confident swagger - sort of like John Wayne. Throw your leg over the back and plop down in the seat with authority. Look left, look right and sneer at the Harleys. At this point it is crucial that your bike starts on the first try or else you will look like a complete asshole. I mean, hero to zero with the push of a button! Anyway, crank it up and pull away slowly - no need to show out; let the bike do the work. Now, if you are at church it's a different story. To avoid excommunication or burning at the stake you are just looking for a quick, unassuming getaway with minimal fuss. Really, you should have taken the car but God loves bikers and understands the need to ride on a beautiful Sunday morning. Just watch out for "Sister Bertha Better Than You" and her gang of judgemental old bitties. If you managed to park on a hill and can coast out of earshot before cranking up your satanic death machine then that is the way to go. Finally, when the cops finally let you go after writing that speeding ticket, it is considered bad form to rev your bike and peel out, spraying gravel into the cops grill. The church method is much more appropriate here...
