I admit that I do it but I don't chit where I eat.

There is a guy down the street from me that must blip the throttle, even at midnight, all the time. I think he was an extra on South Park.

If memory serves me right (w/c rarely happens) sportbikers do this too. BUT I can only remember sportbikers do this right after starting the engine. Good example was the last noob forest ride. People did it at the gas station before leaving (to warm engine) but I cant seem to recall people doing it at stop lights etc.

And I am an observant person.

I do it because it is fun. I especially like doing it by teenage girls walking on shoreline. I pull in the clutch make the bike quiet as possible then blip it hard while I am going past them. they jump up scream hold their chest doesn't matter...very entertaining to say the least.

I have also done it before a burnout to make sure the carb is cleared(most times it is) I also do it under everybridge.

Just a recommendation: don't blip your throttle to warm up. Warm up is when the poor engine has the least amount of oil to protects all of those expensive moving parts. Unless it stalls let it just warm up naturally; if it does stall just keep enough throttle to keep it running.
Also don't blast around right after start as both the engine and the tires need to come up to operating temperatures. The engine will just be expensive; while the tires can dump your dumbass faster than the femtosecond laser pulse at UT.

Not to be picky but, in the interest of educating the youth of today, spoiled by fuel injection and electronic ignition, let me add a correction.

I believe the reason people used to blip the throttle was not because the carbs would flood but, because the plugs would foul.
This could happen for several reasons. The carbs could be adjusted/jetted too rich, the ignition systems were pretty lame so the plug might not be firing a good hot spark. Also, the materials used to build engines were not as good as today so the compression might be low, plug wires too much resistance, etc. etc.

Wow no one has touched the right answer.

Bikes have not always had "neutral" indicator lights. A common technique to ensure you were in neutral when rolling to a stop was to blip the throttle slightly, if the bike jumped, you missed, if it didn't, you hit it. Used with dirt bikes especially which have no lights typically.

Now that being said, it has developed into a bunch of queers revving the out of their motors for no apparent reason on ALL kinds of bikes not just Harleys.

wtf? I rarely see a sport bike randomly rev, and i dont think ive ever seen a non-harley cruiser do this. for two days ive been trying to find a reason for this and i cant and then some jackass was doing it at 5am on the way to work and wanted to race me on his street glide at the light.

its frackin weird and i need an explanation, damnit.
you must not live in this country?
