Ya, i got into the habit of starting a bike, then putting on all my gear, including helmet then gloves before throwing a leg over it. Of course i started that with old air cooled bikes that needed a moment to heat up, but i can't imagine that it does any damage to the vstrom either! I started it because i kept hitting the road only to find 3 or 4 miles down the road i'd forgotten something, like glasses, gloves, boots, etc!
It's a funny thing about comin' home. Looks the same, smells the same, feels the same. You'll realize what's changed is you.
