I bumped into this today and finally found the solution I was looking for. I try to avoid the large traffic times, and often get stuck at a light until a car comes by (or I take right turns and make U-turns). I hope this helps some of you.
yeah I read about those a few months ago and forgot about them. Luckily here in TN they recently passed a law about bicycles and motorcycles, with all the weight sensors at traffic lights now, you don't have to stay stopped at a red light, if it's clear when you stop you can continue on your way. Whenever I do this, I always pedal. I've done this at a light only to see a police car coming toward me from the other direction, just after I had quit pedaling and given the throttle a good twist.
Guess I'm just blessed with cops that just don't care about a motor bike, especially if you are wearing your helmet.
