Dude, if your bike is so not-metal that you have to tape a freakin' neodynium magnet to it, go find another bbs that will be of more use to you.

The problems I have at stop lights are where the obvious loop cuts have had a fresh layer of asphalt, so I end up guessing and apparently stopping too far forward of some of them.

It's not too bad unless there's traffic behind you, and the person stopping behind you gives you a big enough cushion that they don't hit the loop either.

If there's somebody behind me, I'll wave them up to my back bumper.
If there's nobody behind me, I just run the light, and say a silent thank you to Jesse.

Well I usually just run the red light rather that screw around like that, but a magnet seems like a better option.

Just run the light if you've waited to long...

Sec. 42. Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 169.06, is amended by adding a subdivision to read: Subd. 9. [AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE RELATING TO UNCHANGING TRAFFIC CONTROL SIGNAL.]

(a) A person operating a motorcycle who violates subdivision 4 by entering or crossing an intersection controlled by a traffic-control signal against a red light has an affirmative defense to that charge if the person establishes all of the following conditions:

(1) the motorcycle has been brought to a complete stop;

(2) the traffic-control signal continues to show a red light for an unreasonable time;

(3) the traffic-control signal is apparently malfunctioning or, if programmed or engineered to change to a green light only after detecting the approach of a motor vehicle, the signal has apparently failed to detect the arrival of the motorcycle and

(4) no motor vehicle or person is approaching on the street or highway to be crossed or entered or is so far away from the intersection that it does not constitute an immediate hazard.


(b) The affirmative defense in this subdivision applies only to a violation for entering or crossing an intersection controlled by a traffic-control signal against a red light and does not provide a defense to any other civil or criminal action.
