Why call mythbusters? Anyone who took Physics 101 could tell you why this is true.

I do that and it's not to heat the tires. It's more of a mental thing, it gives me confidence like knowing that the bike can lean and be fine. It also kinda makes me feel in control. I've read several articles that support what you say about hard acceleration and braking warming the tires. Good info.

I sometimes do it for a sec. before going through some curves aggressively . I usually only do it after long straights to scrub some off the tires. They are warm by the time I get to the curves. It makes me feel better.

I also do it. Essentially I am trying to warm up my body and reflexes when I do that. It's got nothing to do with the tires. If that makes me look stupid then I'm perfectly okay with it. Whatever it takes to get me road-centered.

I think on big group rides it is hard and quite annoying to go fast and grab a handful of brake over and over, specially for the rest of the riders behind you.....

Heating up your tires for street rides

I do it because it is fun and it helps me loosen up and get my mind in the right place. It helps me focus on using my thighs, relaxing my arms and practice countersteering. I also do this to scrub in new tires.

Never really occurred to me that someone behind me would think I was a fool.

Keep in mind that most of us are using sport touring tires. We do not need to warm them up the same way you do with the compounds you use on the track.

I do it sometimes to just to loosen me mentally and get me in the mood. Its silly but its fun to do.

Like when kids do things that look silly cause its fun. No real reason.
