My dad's old Harley is like that. I have ridden it a few times. I hate having to rev constantly at lights just to keep the thing from shutting off.

Well.. Just think about it for a second: if they could do wheelies instead, they would. Since they can't, blippage occurs.

I have actually only heard a few sport bikes do this, but literally THOUSANDS of Harley riders doing it. Some for 2-3 minutes at a time. It seems as though they have a Hitler-like hatred for rings. I dont know, maybe a family member was assaulted by a Wiseco salesman when they were young??

I got enough of it riding next to Evo with his exhaust cut off. That is the day I started calling him "Jiffy-pop".

From my experience, I'd say its 50/50...but I can say in Galveston County, we have much more sport bike riders going to Galveston that rev there for no reason. And I never understood why.

I think its more noticable on a harley but more annoying on a sport bike.

Ya, dad's got an '82 Sportster with an Elderbroch carb, and it runs so rich its got a rough idle. So needless to say, you can feel when the bike is about to die and you need to blip the throttle once or twice at a light to keep that antique alive; and when the generator just isn't feeling it that day, he needs to rev just to keep juice flowing from the brushes.

You know what they say about Harleys - they're the best looking bikes on the side of the road (in their opinion)
