Do you rev?

I notice that some riders rev their engines at stop lights. Is there some useful purpose for this, what am I missing?

Aside from sounding cool or letting others know you are there, there really isn't a purpose to it.

I've noticed two stroke guys do that a lot:

I think the 2-smokers do it for a reason. Like so something does built up somewhere or some shit, is that confusing enough?

2 smokers do that for 2 reasons. 1. as to clear the crankcase so it doesn't load up and foul the plugs. 2. proper GP bikes don't idle.

yep 2 strokes will bog really heavy if you don't keep em hot, so they rev for a reason. 4 strokes, no benefit besides proving your squidliness, or getting a milf's attention at a light, lol

2 reasons.

1) To alert people I'm riding with that we are about to move again.

2) If you are wearing helmet and earplugs and you don't have an aftermarket exhaust and your bike is silky smooth reving (read HONDA) - I sometimes do it to get a feel for the motor before letting out the clutch.

On older HD's it helps to keep the plugs from fouling and also helps in getting a cleaner shift from neutral into first. Now I'm not talkin' about any BIG revvin', just a blip of the throttle every now and then. Newer HD's just don't need it as much.

But I did notice that you must still rev the new HD's as you pass under an overpass to get that cool roar.

+1

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."
