I bought a bike that is pretty tough and although I HATE to drop it ... it is inevitable because I am learning how to do wheelies and after that I'll be trying stoppies. So I got this tip from the head mechanic, where I bought my bike, after I mentioned how annoying it is to have to sit around waiting after the engine floods when the bike goes down. He says turn the fuel off and rev the bike softly while starting it ... once it starts up and sputters out, switch the fuel back on, restart and ride away. Yeah it seemed bloody obvious after he told me ... but thats the thing about being a n00b ... you have a lot to learn. Not sure if this technique is bad for modern sports motors (I seriously doubt it) but it works without any problem for my bike.
