Yay, I made your sig!!!
As you can tell from the vids I sent you, I do not speed at all.
At the point that the officer stated he couldn't prove anything, I would have asked him if I was going to be cited for any other violations. When he said no, I would say have a nice day and ride off. Just about everyone with a sportbike winds it out from time to time. It's part of the game. But you have to be careful because they are watching for you, and will bust you when they get a chance. Most cops have a hard on for sportbikes and they'll watch you like a hawk. That's one of the problems with pipes...they can hear you coming a mile away.
So to answer your question, no most riders don't see a problem with twisting the throttle every now and then (or every chance they get) but illegal is illegal, so be cautioned that you are taking a chance every time you do it.
