Ill start it up on the choke idleing at 2-3k rpm put my helmet on then take it off the choke so its ticking over on 1k then wack my gloves on shut the garage door, check my pockets are done up, go thro my village at 30mph in a high gear bout a mile later the beast gets a thrashing

With 4t warming up is far less crucial than 2t, but any engine benefits from a little warming up, get the oil up to temperature and circulating. Also riding a bike with the choke on is not a very good idea really. As others have said, on a 4t I'd get the bike out, start it and let it idle while I kit up, shut the garage etc, take it steady for the first couple of minutes then game on

i dont bother with my car either tbh, didn't think you should really as the red line on my car is 6 and i change gear at like 3k so the engine doesnt really get a thrashin ever.

Choke on, start it, wait till it revs till 4k on hte choke then let the choke off and leave it to idle at 1k whilst i put my gear on...Give it a few blips of the throttle upto about 5k then wait till it shows 40c on the temp gauge then take it easy for abit till it reaches 55-60 then start to pick the pace up.

As for cars, I've always believed in letting mine warm up before giving it some, even more so since I've driven a diesel, always wait for the preheater light to go out before starting etc, then take it easy untill the temp guage is middling.

Now that I'm in a company car though that all goes out of the window and it's bounced of the rev limiter from the moment of turning the key PMSL

Don't have a bike any more but mine got warmed up for about 5 miles or so. On my car VTEC won't work if it's cold lol, too clever for it's own good. It's worth remembering that you're wearing your engine the most when it's cold because your oil doesn't lubricate at its peak, so 4ts need warming up as well as 2ts. Also, you can rev an engine to its redline from cold and do less damage than giving it full throttle at low revs, it's all about load and stress, not engine revs!
