Very hard starting when cold

When my bike is cold , below 60 deg, it takes maybe 10 or more tries to start it and keep it going. And when it does finally start it sounds almost as if only one cylinder is running until it warms a bit. Approximately 30-45 seconds. Full choke on. The valves were adjusted recently. Once it's going it runs fine. And if I shut it off for an hour or so it starts easily.
Any ideas?

My bike does the same. Keep it inside if possible in winters.
