Default Re: Stop lights

There are a few solutions:

First, check your traffic laws! In SC, a motorcyclist is allowed to go through a red light if there are no cars and he has waited 120 seconds.

Place a strong rare earth magnet under the bottom bracket. Also, don't stop IN the loop. Stop on the loop. Position your frame such that the frame is directly over the cut in the asphalt. Use this combination of magnets and frame placement, and it works well.

Your other option is to turn off the engine, get off the bike, and walk over to the sidewalk and push the crosswalk button, if so equipped.

(Or... just do like the spandex crowd does and blow through it and flip off people as they almost hit you. I don't recommend this method)
Never stop wrenching
