Being stuck on a red light is no fun. Especially in the California weather. I just installed a magnet on my Carmen that can hold weight up to 100 lbs. That should do the trick. What do you guys think?

Most states have laws regarding motorcycles and unchanging lights. Ask a police officer what yours are. Here in WI, I usually count to about 30 seconds, and if no cars are coming that might help me trigger a light, I take off.

I hate those road works lights that are on a trailer, the sensors suck for bikes. You can't go on a red because its one way, you either have to wait for a car or get off your bike and jump around like a madman lol

I've heard about the magnet idea and from the people I've talked to it works well, i agree with asking local law enforcement about any laws regarding the subject though. i'll be doing the same here shortly

Or come to Canada in the next couple of months when the temperature is in the minus and you just want to get home to the warmth lol.
I ride till it snows regardless of the temperature

Mbison83, I don't have the specific legal reference for your question but in CA, socal at least, its generally accepted that you can proceed after two (2) cycles.
