I don't ride fast from a start because my engines just don't run that well until they get a little heat going. That usually takes about a block, depending on outdoor temperature, and 1/2 throttle or so. After that, all's well.

If the engine even feels warm to the touch it will run well. It's when it is dead cold, or ambient temperature that I give it a little time to warm before expecting too much from it.
