Cool down

How many of you guys let your bikes "cool down" after you get to your destination. I know most of us let them warm up before leaving for a number of reasons but, do you, after you get to said place let your bike idle for a brief time before turning off?
All my cars are/have been hi performance or turbo so I always let them sit for a minute after I get somewhere, no load, oil free flowing over the parts and bearings before hitting the kill switch. That said I do let my bike run for a few seconds while ungearing and what not. What do you all do?

When I arrive I turn the bike off usually 10 seconds after I arrive just to listen for any unusual noises.

I only let it run if the fan is running. If it is, I let it run until it kicks off.

You start the game with a full pot of luck and an empty pot of experience. The object is to fill the pot of experience before you empty the pot of luck.
