We're all just creatures of habit, aren't we?

Actually, I've always done pretty much the same thing with all my motorcycles (or cars I cared about) that I do with the 911 - just always wanted to get some heat into the motor - especially valves, pistons and heads - before putting any load on.

Some of that is a product of 60's Triumphs and Harleys having no cold enrichment worth a damn - they'll run with no load, but you need some heat in there in order to pull away without them being very cranky about it...
'77 S with '78 930 power and a few other things.
