I have, for the last 35 years, always put some anti-sieze on the plug, then 
used a rag on the threads to remove most of it. I will continue to do so for 
both my bikes and cars.

Having said that, if I had to wait for my for my engine to cool below 1200 F 
before removing the plugs, whether or not I used anti-sieze would be the 
least of my worries.
